St. Joseph Peace Mission

The St. Joseph Peace Mission for Children began October 27, 1996, as a non-profit emergency shelter for abused and neglected children. The peace mission will provide children and sibling groups in need with a safe and nurturing home environment. Children and youth at the St. Joseph Peace Mission are typically placed with us through a referral from local agencies and other professionals. While at the the mission or the Yewell Home for Boys, children and youth are able to recieve a variety of specialized services, while maintaing a schedule and routine that promotes a structured home environment. We have a highly dedicated, trained staff who are passionate about providing excellent service that fosters safety, structure, and stability.

The idea to create the St. Joseph Peace Mission for children originated in 1995 following a severe case of abuse and neglect that led to the untimely and tragic homicide of a local four-year old boy, Phillip Strain. The local community, alongside political figures, law enforcement agencies and members within the Catholic community came together to develop an organization to ensure that abused and neglected children within the Owensboro-Daviess county area would always have a safe and nurturing place to call home, if and when needed.

It is because of the relentless support shown to us by the community, our passionate staff members, and our dedicated board of directors and leadership team, that the St. Joseph Peace Mission and Yewell Home for Boys continues to thrive each day with great success.

The St. Joseph Peace Mission is a non-profit organization in Owensboro, Kentucky, designed to provide services and shelter to youth in need.

To provide dependent children, sibling groups, or pregnant teens in need with a safe, caring Christian environment where peace, love and security may be found.
