To our friends with rental property: We need to rent your place . . . Since 2009, The Journey Home has leased houses and apartments to supplement the homes we own to use as supportive housing for homeless families with children as we work with them to move forward on their journey of self-building and fully becoming part of community again. Affordable housing is really tight, and we're hoping that a few of you can help us out. Although our participants pay a rent that is based on their income, we absorb much of the cost through a combination of donations and grants. Geneva is currently looking for a 2BR and a 3BR house or apartment in Murfreesboro and a 3BR in Smyrna/Lavergne that we could rent reasonably and use for our program. As always, we need God's provision in this. So, if you have something that might work, I'm just asking that you pray about it and see if God might want to use you to impact the life of a family in this way. If so, send me a message or call me on my cell 615-867-4040. I'll explain the details. Blessings, Scott ... See more
