Founded in 2006, The Journey Home is a Christian ministry that serves the homeless and disadvantaged of Rutherford County by helping to rehouse and provide resources and relationships that encourage faith, economic stability, wholeness, and reintegration into community life.

Being homeless brings daily challenges that are interconnected and impact every aspect of a person’s life. Lasting change happens when we meet a person at their point of need, help them set goals and enhance their life skills, address their health and self-worth, and secure jobs and stable housing. Above all, it requires the hope and strength found in a relationship with Jesus Christ and a caring community of volunteers.

The best solutions require all of us in the community to Love God and Serve People.

Our Goals

To operate safe and hospitable outreach and housing facilities where encouragement is offered and basic needs are met.

To equip clients with knowledge, tools, and other resources useful on their road to independent living.

To connect clients with sustainable housing solutions that foster stability and break the cycle of homelessness.

To educate our community as to the prevalence and causes of homelessness in our area and how they can help.

To foster increased cooperation and collaboration in the social service community and create opportunities for Christian service in our county.

Our Mission

All people deserve a place to call home and opportunities for well-being and self-sufficiency, yet homelessness among children, families, and adults continues to grow in our community—leaving many vulnerable, desperate, and with few options.

The Journey Home will provide resources, services, and programs that provide hope to the homeless and equip them for independence and full reintegration into community life.

Our Strategy

The best solutions involve the entire community
working to engage, stabilize and heal our vulnerable families and individuals.

Our ultimate goal is to help rehouse the disadvantaged and provide basic needs. The Journey Home needs generous investors willing to give their time, talent, and treasure to heal our disadvantaged residents.
