It's the simple things in life that matter....

Hospitality House of Owatonna, Inc. offers temporary accommodations for men who are transitioning through homelessness. Our purpose is to provide a place of hospitality that is safe, clean and comfortable.
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 relies on the philanthropy of compassionate people and organizations who see the value in what we do.
