Learn How Your Support Fuels Our Ministry

Homelessness in Evansville and across Vanderburgh County is increasing.

The number of people experiencing homelessness has steadily increased over the past few years as more people in our community have found themselves struggling… emotionally, financially, and spiritually.

Addiction & Overdose Deaths Are Increasing


Rise in availability & cheaper cost of opioids – in 2021, Vanderburgh County had 106 overdose deaths. That’s up from 67 deaths in 2020 – a 58% increase.

“I started using drugs… and I didn’t like how much I wanted them.”

— Michael | ERM Resident

More People Are Living In Poverty Or Becoming Homeless


Finding affordable housing & difficulty earning a living wage.

“I lost my job because of the pandemic… and became homeless.

— Thomas | ERM Resident

Mental Illness Is Going Untreated


High cost of medication & lack of specialized care available.

“Before I came to the Mission, I was a broken man, spiritually, physically, and mentally.”

— Anthony | ERM Resident
