Our Mission

The mission of Boulware Mission, Inc. is to help displaced individuals become self-sufficient through treatment, education and services.  Our focus is on recovery from the root causes that brought our clients to Boulware in the first place.  


About Us

Boulware Mission has been a staple of the Owensboro community for over 96 years.  Today's Mission began as the dream of a local school teacher, Miss Milton Boulware, who wanted to help feed the poor and shelter the homeless.  She and four colleagues founded the Gospel Center Mission, which would later be re-named the Boulware Mission, on May 23, 1921.  In it's early days, it served as a faith-based settlement house and a place where neighborhood children could be supervised after school.  Over the years, the work of the Mission has adapted many times in order to meet the greatest needs of the community.  

Today, Boulware Mission provides shelter services to displaced men as well as a long-term self-sufficiency program aimed at helping clients become indepenent, contributing members of the community. Boulware primarily serves the Green River Area Development District (GRADD) of Western Kentucky which includes the counties of Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union and Webster. The Mission is located in Owensboro, Kentucky.

The services provided by Boulware Mission are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Boulware provides clients with 3 nutritious meals per day, snacks, emergency clothing, personal hygiene items, secure shelter, case management services, outreach, advocacy, and referrals to local and regional resources along with follow-up services.  The Self-Sufficiency program includes financial literacy, GED tutoring, employment skills, and licensed substance abuse treatment.  

In addition to the residential services, several services are offered to the public, including an all-female substance abuse treatment program, DUI education program, and treatment program for men.

Money from the United Way, local and federal grants, churches and other organizations, and private contributors pay for the cost of daily operations and services.  Clients pay a small fee to attend the licensed treatment program.

Clients are accepted for services without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, gender identity, disability, genetics, ancestry or veteran status. Boulware is not, however, a medical or assisted living facility and is not equipped to serve individuals who require assistance with daily independent living activities.
