As many of you are aware, bridge construction will cause us to have to relocate from our current site in Jeffersonville. After much prayerful consideration, we have decided that it is time to reevaluate the focus of the Exit 0 ministry and to take this opportunity to redesign ministry operations.

As of June 1, 2013 we will be stopping the community meals at the Exit 0 site and will turn our focus to directly supplying provisions to the homeless camps and the displaced members of the community with whom we have been working. We have been blessed with an abundance of MRE's that we need to distribute. We will be resuming meals July 1, 2013.

John 6:26-29 reminds us that providing food only to fill the stomach falls short of the mission of this ministry. We must endeavor; through truly focused mentor-ship and agape love to point those whom we serve to the One we serve.

Since Exit 0 is pretty much being evacuated where are the homeless relocating? The reason that I'm asking is that a friend works at America Place and is seeing quite a few people exiting the woods behind him early in the morning. Also other friends are seeing an increase in homeless walking the neighborhood next to America Place and where the Highland Dog Park is on Spruce Drive.

Sorry Cubette Been swamped working on things So much going on... We are resuming our feedings on July 1 but not at Exit 0 due to that Road is going to be closed soon and the demolition of Mc Donalds and all those in that row will be torn down as well. We will be in the area of 9th & VFW Blvd this is what was set up by Les as the Safe location for the Homeless like 6 months ago so we thought feeding at this location would be best. Yes the VFW Will be torn down but not as much to be torn down in this area compared to other locations. There could be another move for us again in the future we are not sure at this point but are restructuring some things in the Ministry so that we can outreach more into the community as well & reaching out to the local churches. As for the camps Yes we are aware of a camp up that way been there for over 7 yrs now well before we stepped in. there is roughly 5 back there they have no reason to be in the neighborhood as the trail is no where near the community it goes down the railroad tracks then dumps onto the main road there. As for who owns the Woods I am sure Bigfoot could help with that but i believe its State property or Railroad. On a good note 3 off the streets in 1 months time but our numbers of those on the streets are up to 50 now due to the shelter being filled and Housing taking forever to come thru Also we have now been talking to Seven counties and we are going to get there workers to come out in the field with us so they know of the locations and so they can help them with services as well. They do a great outreach in Louisville by doing this so we are asking to bring it over here in Indiana right now agencies from Indiana DO NOT go into the camps or GO OUT to find the mentally ill to get into the programs they just wait till they come knocking on there door for the services but we know some are unable to do this due to there illness. But that is a wrap for now If you have any questions please contact me. Thanks again and apologize took a little to get back with you.

Cubette,

You can use the Clark County EGIS to see who owns a specific property. http://clarkin.egis.39dn.com/ Just type in a address or use your mouse to zoom into a area you want to check out. as you get closer to a area the plat lines will show up and you can view tax records for those properties which will show the current owners.

To view the current owners you will need to click the button at the top that says "Turn Map Tips On" Also you don't have to register for the site. You can click a link below the login box to view as a guest.

all meals at Exit 0 cancelled due current construction, safety of volunteers and clients we serve and as we look for new location to feed at. We will update when things are figured out.
