Hospitality House of Owatonna, Inc. offers temporary and emergency accommodations for men who are transitioning through homelessness.  We are a non-profit 501(c)3 community based-organization whose purpose is to provide a place of hospitality that is safe, clean and comfortable.  Its purpose and function are modeled after the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker Movement houses of hospitality.

We strive to be a home free of judgment where men can find respite and a base from which to organize themselves for the next phase of their lives.  Hospitality House works with guests to locate and access the resources they need to progress towards self-sufficiency and independent living.

The House receives no government funding and is therefore dependent on the philanthropy of compassionate people who see the value in what we do.

Management of Hospitality House of Owatonna, Inc. is through a Board of Directors, Program Manager, Program Coordinator, and overnight staff who ensure that house rules are followed and that the men are accountable to themselves, their fellow guests, their neighborhood, and the community-at-large. In addition, a cadre of volunteers donate their time, skills, and energy to assist the operation and are most important to our success.
