Welcome to our organization

Our Mission

The Martha's House mission is to provide safe shelter while working to end homelessness.

Our Vision:

The Martha's House vision is of a community where everyone has a home.

Our History:

Martha's House was founded in December 2002, incorporated in September 2003, and opened our doors on January 1, 2004 to serve the needs of the homeless in Bloomington, Indiana. Named after Martha Register, a long time advocate for the poor and homeless, Martha's House is the only provider of individual emergency shelter and case management services in Monroe County that serves both men and women and does not require participation in religious services or is related to specific concerns (such as domestic violence or addiction recovery) as a condition of shelter.
