Exodus Place 1

The Exodus Place Community Center — which coordinates job training and placement, educational and housing opportunities in an effort to treat the causes of violent crime — will celebrate the grand opening of its building at Fourth and Dryades on Wednesday (Dec. 4).

The celebration will run from 6 to 9 p.m. and include food and drinks. For more information, see the invitation from the center below:

Please join us for the Grand Opening of Exodus Place Community Center.

The children of our city are being taken away from us at disturbingly increasing rates by the violence that has plagued our city for far too long. We have to take the responsibility to do more than shake our heads at stories like the one last week where a 7 month old was robbed of his life while riding in his car seat or the 15 year old killed just the night before. The challenge and solutions seem overwhelming for sure. After all, where do we start—with parents, with education, with conflict resolution, with job training and assistance?

Join us in taking one step as we finally open the doors of Exodus Place Community Center. Over the past year, Exodus Place has provided vocational training, job placement, affordable housing and pairing with resources in other areas such as literacy and early childhood education as well as provided recreational activities for neighborhood kids. We are excited about opening the doors to the center and continuing to provide a safe and productive place for children and young adults.
