First United Methodist Church focused on The Journey Home during this year’s Lenten season and each Sunday during their Mission Moments. Church members who have volunteered with The Journey Home spoke and gave testimony on their volunteer experience and made the case for investment in The Journey Home’s Capital Campaign. FUMC also created a display that focused on homelessness in Murfreesboro and had a special offering on Palm Sunday, which raised $42,880.62 for our Capital Campaign.

Thank you First United Methodist Church for partnering with us and supporting our mission to rehouse and provide resources and relationships that encourage faith, economic stability, wholeness, and reintegration into community life.

Special thanks to Drew Shelley, Sally Millsap, Dawn Guardalabene, Geneva Poss, Bill Reid, Rosanne Barton, and Danielle Harrell.

The Journey Home works to rehouse the homeless and disadvantaged while providing support services to help those who are most vulnerable in Rutherford County. Founded in 2006 as a Christian Outreach serving the homeless and disadvantaged of Rutherford County, The Journey Home has served 1,000s since opening its doors. This past year, the nonprofit rehoused 225 households moving more than 425 people from homelessness to permanent housing. Serving more than 1,600 people through all its services, The Journey Home is an important resource for Rutherford County’s vulnerable citizens. The nonprofit is focused on rehousing and operates the Outreach Center and Community Café serving meals 7-days a week, providing wellness checkups, providing shelter during the coldest nights of the year, and offering hygiene supplies, showers, mail services, and access to the internet and computers.
