Has anyone heard from DeWayne after his surgery? I just saw on my phone obituaries that a Freeland DeWayne Maxwell had passed away today. Please let me know if this is the gentleman that volunteered at Journey Home. ... See more
Everyone, if you are volunteering at The Journey Home, please don't park in front of the fence that runs along West Castle Street in front of Hooper Supply. Mr. Hooper has posted it for his customers only. You will be towed! Let's be good neighbors and not park there. There is ample space in front of the old farmer's market next to Cannonsburgh or at the Cannonsburgh lot. We could all use the short walk, and his customers will appreciate having a place to park! Thank you. Scott ... See more
Coldest nights shelters will be OPEN Tonight (Wednesday & Thursday) Feb 8th & 9th. Thanks, Scott, Jason, and Ed Coldest Nights is a crisis shelter program for adults when cold temperatures make staying outdoors a threat to health and safety. It is provided as a collaborative effort of The Journey Home, First Baptist Church, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Murfreesboro Rescue Mission, and the Murfreesboro Cold Patrol. We provide a hot meal, fellowship and safe sleeping quarters for anyone that is staying outside in tents, vehicles, and the like. (If you see someone out who looks like they need a safe warm bed, meal and shower, let them know about the program. Feel free to give the Murfreesboro Cold Patrol a call for assistance.) 615434COLD Murfreesboro TN Police Department Rutherford County Sheriff's Office ... See more

The Journey Home is hunting a new Volunteer Coordinator! We've been blessed to have Lisa Chappell in that spot for several years, but her role with us is changing, so...Might the next person up be you?? It's a volunteer job right now that takes a few hours each week, primarily on social media, notes and phone calls. The idea is to help get the message out about volunteer opportunities to recruit individuals and groups, then to coordinate their activities (make sure they know when, where, what to bring, etc), and regularly follow-up to see how they did or are doing. About 1,400 people spent time volunteering with us (mostly in groups) in service to those struggling among us. They represent the equivalent of about 8 full-time employees. HUGE part of serving the community! Interested? Comment, message, call me on my cell if you want (615-867-4040)...I want to talk to you! Scott ... See more
