Capacity of 222 beds

The 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 1st & March 31st and during the summer months when there are periods of excessive heat. If you are employed while staying at the Evansville Rescue Mission, receive money for services; or receive pension, SSI, SSDI you will be required to pay program fees. Workers will have 30 days to provide two paystubs or an award letter. Failure to do so will result in possible no passes being issued or dismissal from the facility.

We will collect $5.00 per day from individuals who are working. This will help establish a payment history for residents when the leave the PACES or work program(s) of the ERM. Residents who receive Social Security, SSDI or SSI income will be required to pay 25% of their income.

Meal served by faithful community volunteers. Each and every day (including holidays), not only our homeless guests, but the general public have the opportunity to visit the Residence Center for a meal. Meal times are offered as follows:
    Breakfast 6:30 to 7:00 a.m. Monday through Friday
    Breakfast 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday
    Lunch 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday
    Lunch 12:30 to 1 p.m. Sunday
    Dinner 5:30-6:00 p.m.
