Boulware Mission's Self-Sufficiency program helps individuals identify and overcome obstacles to their financial well-being and independence through education, skill development, support, treatment, and comprehensive long-term services. While participating in the program, indivuals are provided with safe and clean housing, clothing, nutritious meals, and other basic needs. Other services include case management, licensed substance abuse treatment, financial literacy, employment skills, GED tutoring, healthy living/family living, advocacy, and other services aimed at self-sufficiency.
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 shelter is located in Owensboro, Kentucky. The services provided by Boulware Mission are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Money from the United Way, local and federal grants, churches, fundraisers, and private contributors pay for the cost of daily operations and services. Clients help defray some operating costs by voluntarily performing household chores and participating in special projects sponsored by Boulware Mission.
Clients are accepted for services without regard to age, race, sex, national origin, income, religious affiliation, referral source, marital status, sexual orientation, or physical or mental impairment. Boulware is not, however, a medical or assisted living facility and is not equipped to serve individuals who need assistance with daily independent living activities.
