STUDENT OUTREACH

A Place to Sleep

www.facebook.com/pg/APlaceToSleep/

Inspired by the movie, The Blind Side, 10-yr-old Jessica Collins was determined in 2009 to provide a bed for someone who didn’t have one, preferably a child. Now an official ministry of First Presbyterian Church, A Place to Sleep has provided beds to over 1,300 children as of 6/1/17. Currently there are more than 50 children on the waiting list ranging in ages from newborn through high school. Help in the form of furniture, bedding or cash donations are always welcome.

Children are recommended by the Family Resource & Youth Service Center Coordinators at each school. A Place to Sleep has helped children from every school in the Shelby County School System as well as Spencer, Henry, Oldham, Bullitt, Jefferson, Woodford, Franklin, Anderson, Marion & Knott.

Their current need is mattresses.

Contact info: APlacetoSleep@hotmail.com or call 502-633-2693 or 502-321-7116 to leave a message.


 

Louisville Rescue Mission

Louisville Rescue Mission offers a variety of programs to meet the needs of the whole person. When someone is homeless or hurting, they have immediate physical needs. They have Emergency Services, which include food, clothing, hot showers, storage and mail service. They also offer a Life Change program for men 18+ and a subsidized housing option for men coming out of homelessness.

We typically help by serving a meal to the residents. This is the best way for students and families to be involved.
