Causes of homelessness are increasingly diverse ranging from job loss, physical illness, a move, a divorce, domestic abuse, financial mismanagement, mental illness, and drug/alcohol addiction.
No matter the circumstance, your Evansville Rescue Mission opens its doors daily with a help desk open 24/7 to provide for the basic needs of the Tri-State’s less fortunate.
With a capacity of 222 beds (not including cots and mattresses), your Evansville Rescue Mission’s Residence Center is the Tri-State’s oldest and largest service provider for homeless men but offers emergency services for the general public, as well.
Despite this capacity, we do not turn any male (over the age of eighteen) away during times of inclement weather; specifically, between November & March and June & August during the summer months when there are periods of excessive heat.
For an in-depth look into the Residence Center’s shelter policy and procedures, please refer to our ERM Guest Welcome Booklet.
