Freedom From Captivity
Exodus Family Ministries seeks to guide our neighbors in Southwest Louisville out of captivity – whether it be poverty, addiction, lack of education, hunger, or other forms of oppression – by offering support, prayer, and services to address these needs.
With the rising costs of groceries, transportation, and housing, many hard-working families are having to choose between food and other necessities. Through partnerships with Dare to Care and Kentucky Harvest, we provide food to our neighbors who need it. Healthier people make better choices, which affects the community.
Our clothes closet program delivers dignity and respect through the gift of clothing. We’ve heard about students who were bullied or workers who were embarrassed because they didn’t have appropriate, properly fitting clothes and how it impacted their lives. Having clean, nice clothing that fits makes a difference and provides people with more confidence and greater acceptance.
We offer high-quality after-school and summer tutoring programs that help at-risk youth (K-12) get the attention and assistance they need to improve their reading, math, and interpersonal skills. Our partnership with Dare to Care Kid’s Café ensures each youth receives a hot dinner meal each day of the program.
Exodus Family Ministries sees the hurdles our area’s unhoused have accessing resources downtown, so we’ve begun working on a resource center for Southwest Louisville. We’ve already secured commitments from social service organizations downtown to provide on-site help in our area of town. In the meantime, we are actively engaging with the unhoused through relationship building and meeting basic needs.
