Henry Muller Hall, Sioux City

Henry Muller Hall is a transitional housing facility for homeless men in Sioux City supported in part with a Northwest District Matthew 25 grant.

The facility was established in August of 2005 and named for a retired pastor from the Crescent Park United Methodist Church, who  died two months short of its opening. Pastor Muller was very helpful as he worked with the Mental Health Association of Siouxland in developing the ministry. He had previous experience with the community housing administration while serving a United Methodist Church in Illinois.

Henry Muller Hall has continuously served a culturally diverse population of men, many of whom suffer from mental illness and/or addiction as well as physical disabilities. These homeless men are accepted to this transitional recovery housing program when they have exhausted all previous options for independent living.

Apportionments gifts from local United Methodist churches throughout Iowa provide the funds for the Matthew 25 grant. The funding has helped to expand recovery services provided to the residents, and their number has been increasing each year.
