Hotel Louisville's Many Programs for the Homeless
Hi, I would like to give you a quick update on Wayside Christian Mission!
The Mission operates out of two campuses, the Shelter at Jackson and Jefferson Streets and Hotel Louisville on West Broadway.
At the Shelter, we recently completed isolation protocols after 60 individuals tested positive for COVID-19. Things are back to the new normal, continuing to social distance, wear masks, and test for the virus.
The Mission is operating near capacity but has a comfortable number of emergency spaces during these cold winter months.
At our Hotel Louisville campus, we have just added a COVID-19 isolation floor, partnering with Metro Louisville and Metro Louisville Public Health and Wellness.
This COVID-19 isolation program accepts homeless individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. The program also accepts individuals who have tested positive and need to isolate themselves from other family members in their homes.
Hotel Louisville has a number of homeless transitional programs to fill in the gap between emergency shelter and a return to housing in the community. These are a few of the programs that make Hotel Louisville a special place of ministry and hope in our community!
A long term abstinence-based alcohol and drug recovery program for women, and families.
Transitional housing for clients completing our recovery programs and who have jobs and need a supportive drug free environment,
Permanent supportive housing for women with mental and physical disabilities.
Hospital lodging for out of town families needing medical treatment at local hospitals,
Clean and Sober Housing extended housing.
Banquet space provided free of charge to homeless and formerly homeless folks for weddings, funerals, sobriety celebrations.
Meeting space for worship services, Bible studies, recovery meetings, and holiday celebrations for homeless men women, and families,

Free food services for individuals enrolled in one of the hotel programs,
The hotel is also the location for the Mission’s administration offices, including volunteer services, accounting and development,
As well as, offices for partnering homeless providers.
Hotel Louisville has several social enterprising programs that are open to the public and help support the Mission’s programs.
These include banquet services, hotel rooms, and the Cardinal Cafe.
Fundraisers are regularly held at the hotel: including fundraising dinners, volunteer celebrations, and weekly dances.
Hotel Louisville is an amazing facility, providing services that fill in the gaps for homeless men, women, and families.
