What is the Honk Movement?

A way for J’s Place to bring awareness to ministries and non-profits that focus on offering a hand up to show the love of God to Jessamine County.

The organization will receive 10% of Thursday’s sales and $0.10 for every honk between 11am and 12pm on Facebook, Twitter, or in front of J’s Place. (Like and follow J’s Place of Facebook to get posts to “Honk”).

CommUNITY is a one word statement that sums up how the Jessamine County Homeless Shelter is being made possible. The Jessamine County Homeless Coalition has been funded by our community coming together and supporting this organization. Jessamine County citizens, businesses, organizations, and churches have contributed approximately 87% of the funds needed for the shelter to open it’s doors. Our community has spoken, a homeless shelter is overdue in Jessamine County. The most common statement the Homeless Coalition has heard while out in the community is “ I am one paycheck away from being homeless myself.” Most of us can relate to this statement, know someone who can, or fear that we may relate in the future.

Jessamine County is the largest county in Kentucky that does not have a homeless shelter. There are currently 35 chronically homeless adults, and 71 homeless children residing in Jessamine County. Due to gentrification, it is estimated that another 1000 individuals will be displaced due to rental payments increasing. The Jessamine County Homeless Shelter will function as an emergency shelter and a transitional shelter. When the shelter opens, the facility will have 50 beds immediately available. The shelter will have job placement services and life skill classes, such as resume writing. It will also provide services to the community such as access to a hot meal or machines to do their laundry.

The Jessamine County Homeless Shelter is open to the public.
