Community Outreach Feeding The CrowdExodus Homes, a Catawba County United Way agency, will host a special “Everything Free” Community Outreach event on October 4, 2014 from 11:00am – 2:00pm at the Ridgeview Recreation Center 700 1st St SW in Hickory. This will be a lively event with great music and testimonies of recovery from addiction and incarceration to encourage the community that people can learn a new way to live.

The last outreach event in July drew between 500 – 600 people from the Hickory area.

    Exodus homes is ran by con-artist. Yes they are making it seem like they are so for giving back to the community. While those that are in the program pay $190.00 a week to live in apartments that look like abandon houses. I know this because my friend attended and I seen first hand. That Longcrier dude is a theft. He all about money and how to get more he doesn't care about those addicts. He just wants the community to see him as a wonderful person. Pastor of a church and don't even help the church members. Gay married couples preaching. When you attend church you have to pay for breakfast and lunch. I want everyone to take a tour of exodus homes and look at the mold. Ask pollen how much they pay. What are they learning! On this very website it says residents pay $120 and that's a lie my friend paid $190.00 every week. Why pay so much for recovery?
