Exodus has a long history of welcoming refugees and asylees from many countries, cultures, languages, faiths, and political opinions. We began in 1981 with the mission to serve the legal needs of immigrants and Cuban refugees, who had arrived as part of the Mariel boatlift in 1980. Since that time, Exodus has helped thousands of refugees establish their lives in Indiana.
Right now, Exodus is receiving a high volume of calls and emails about the evacuation in Afghanistan, and how we can help Afghan refugees who may be resettled here in Central Indiana.
While Exodus is preparing to welcome refugees to our community, our work will happen as the “next step” after refugees are processed at military bases throughout the country, including Camp Atterbury. To donate directly to Camp Atterbury, contact the National Guard at 317-247-3559 or reach out to Team Rubicon.
