24-hour shelter for men

St. Benedict’s operates several facilities in Owensboro — a 64-bed men’s shelter, four transitional homes for men, a day shelter for women and families, and a home for women dealing with crisis pregnancies.

The men’s facility serves about 500 clients annually.  Because there are few facilities like St. Benedict’s west of Louisville, the shelter takes in men from about 120 ZIP Codes each year. 

In a nonjudgmental atmosphere, the men’s shelter addresses barriers to self-sufficiency and prepares clients to live independently.

This facility provides single men a place to stay day and night. Clients may take showers, wash clothes, and eat hot meals. We require each man to perform a chore daily, maintain healthy hygiene, work with a case manager, and attend life skills classes when not working.
