Helping homeless women
and children...

Every night in the Evansville, Indiana area alone more than 400 individuals find themselves without a place to call home.  One third of these are children.  The House of Bread and Peace is a shelter for women and women with children.  Since opening in 1986, it has provided a homelike environment in which hundreds of homeless women and children have been able to heal from the wounds of homelessness.  

The mission of The House of Bread and Peace is to provide for the basic needs of homeless women and children while assisting the women in becoming independent and self sufficient.  We help them build a strong foundation for a more successful life by identifying and addressing their individual needs and goals.
