Programs

EHC contributes to a community-wide effort by serving as a catalyst for change and innovation in the fight against homelessness. We provide safe, affordable housing and supportive services to build skills and motivation for life success. Our supportive services help individuals overcome challenges and realize their true potential.

The Situation: Homeless Hardship

Homelessness continues to grow at alarming rates. On average there are at least 400 individuals in shelter or transitional housing on any given night in Evansville. (Summer 2004 Department of Metropolitan Development point-in-time survey)

The Solution: Housing, help and hope for successful independence and self-sufficiency.

Transformation is possible for every individual, and successful independence can be achieved through hard work, self-determination and coordinated community effort. Our method is to provide safe housing in connection with supportive services that help individuals overcome challenges and realize their true potential.

The Results: Foundation for Success

A stable, healthy home is much more than four walls and a roof….it is a place to feel safe and secure, where learning is encouraged, love and respect abounds, children are nurtured, values are taught and adults use skills and know-how to provide for the needs of the family.

EHC is rebuilding lives every day and laying a new foundation for life success.
