When someone buys an Honor Card for $5.00 or more, the card is given to someone to let them know that a gift has been made in their honor to Exodus Homes.  Each card has information about Exodus Homes and about the Honor Card program.

The video below lets you see “Exodus in Action”, both by listening to residents, staff, board members, and community leaders talk about the impact of the program.

The video was produced in 2005, and features interviews with past and current residents.  Many things have happened at Exodus Homes since this video was produced, but you can still see how much progress and growth the organization has had over recent years.

If you would like a copy of this video on DVD to share with a local community group or with your friends, please contact us at the contact information above.
