HOTEL LOUISVILLE, Louisville, Kentucky
Wayside Christian Mission's usage of Hotel Louisville is unique in America. This twelve story high rise in downtown Louisville provides a comfortable night's rest with a healthy dose of southern hospitality for all of its guests. With its spacious, elegantly-appointed ball rooms, Hotel Louisville has become a local favorite for wedding receptions, church conferences, business gatherings, graduation parties, and family celebrations. The WayCool Cafe offers the best $5 lunch in downtown Louisville, and its Holy Grounds Coffee Shoppe is a great place to meet over a steamy latte.
Hotel Louisville is much more than a hotel--it is a safe haven for women and children and a training center for the chronically unemployed. From the general manager to the front desk clerks to the banquet servers, the hotel is staffed primarily by men and women who have either completed or who are currently in one of its recovery or training programs. Not only are resident clients receiving formal classroom instruction, the Hotel’s work therapy program offers real hands-on training that will enhance their skills for re-entry into the work force.
Jobs are relatively plentiful in the hospitality industry for well-trained job seekers; at present, Hotel Louisville is producing qualified applicants who can be reasonably assured of obtaining gainful employment. Unemployment is a leading cause of homelessness, but through our regimen of classroom instruction and hands-on job training, we are working to eliminate one of the root causes of homelessness in our community. There is more to be done and we truly rely upon our many donors and volunteers, but as you can plainly see, Hotel Louisville is uniquely inspirational!
