Founded on December, 2002


This residence, established in 1993, was the first permanent housing facility created for homeless individuals through a joint venture of the El Paso Housing Authority, the Opportunity Center for the Homeless, and a private
investor.

It currently provides housing for 42 homeless single men who are transitioning from the emergency shelter towards selfsufficiency.

All of its residents are working, volunteering, participating in training programs, and/or going to school.
Many are receiving treatment for a mental illness or have completed a recovery program to overcome a substance addiction.

While living at Missouri Street, residents are encouraged to develop a self-sufficiency plan and pursue their work or education goals.

These individuals are supported through one-on-one case management and life-skills training. They work together to clean and maintain the facility and commit to remaining drug and alcohol-free as they take positive steps forward.
