House of Bread and Peace changes lives in Evansville

 Sr. Joanna Trainer, a Benedictine sister, brought her vision to reality in 1984 when she purchased a house that would become the home needed to shelter women and their children as they began their journey to change their lives. The House can accommodate 22 to 26 individuals, with several rooms available for women with children. It is staffed by an Executive Director, a House Manager, a Night House Manager and volunteers. Despite any previous failings, residents are treated with respect and dignity regardless of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability or political belief.
