J.O.Y. Ministries opens new location

J.O.Y. Ministries is excited to announce that they have moved to a new location! The J.O.Y Crisis Resource Center will now be located at 116 Public Square in Columbia, Kentucky. This central location (next to Moore's Pool Hall) will provide easy access to the Columbia community.

The J.O.Y. Ministries team has been hard at work preparing this space for their clients and will open to the community on Tuesday, July 5. "We are so excited for this new chapter. We have been so fortunate to have great locations in our community that make us accessible to our clients," shares J.O.Y. Vice President, Hannah Peck.

J.O.Y has conducted their need-meeting ministry for over 10 years. J.O.Y's Crisis Resource Center serves as a location for clothing and food provisions, utility/rent assistance, references to community resources and access to shelter for those in need. Additionally, J.O.Y operates Cally's House, a single-family emergency shelter which was constructed in 2019. In 2022, J.O.Y. opened Ruth's Place Women's & Children's Shelter. This five-unit facility will serves as an emergency and transitional homeless shelter.

J.O.Y Ministries is open Monday - Friday from 11amCT to 5pmCT, and can be reached at 270-380-1808.
