Think of Things Our Clients Need
Several of the people we serve travel on foot. Especially in the heat of the summer, it would be nice to travel on a bicycle. Bikes with baskets are especially nice!

Clothing for the family at no charge
Appearance is as important to our social well-being and self-esteem as it is protection for our bodies.
For many of our homeless clients, it is difficult to maintain a wardrobe. They often don't have space to store many clothes. Laundry facilities are costly and inconvenient. If they leave nice clothes unsecured, they walk away.
The Journey Home's Clothes Closet is a place where clients can find nice clothes, at no charge, when they need them.
Our offerings include:
- Men's and Women's Casual, Business, and Church Clothes
- Infants', toddlers' and children's clothes for around the house, school, and church
- Socks and Shoes
- Coats, Hats, Gloves, and Other Winterwear
- Personal hygiene items, such as soap, shampoo, lotion, razors, combs, brushes, oral health items, diapers, and feminine needs
- Storage lockers for clients' personal items while they work
Ways to Reach Out
Everyone has something to give:
You may not have a huge bank account, but if you can sit and visit, it could mean more to a person than you can imagine.
You may not have a lot of time on your hands, but if you can pick up some extra groceries, diapers, or toiletries while you're already at the store it will be a big help.
You may not think you have a skill that would be meaningful in this type of ministry, but you might be surprised. Carpenter? Plumber? Mechanic? Teacher? Bi-Lingual? Minister? Cook? Counselor? Banker? YOU have something to offer at The Journey Home.
The Journey Home is a Christian Outreach
We're Reaching Out to YOU
Maybe there is a feeling of not belonging that keeps you away from those trying to help. We understand that. We also understand that without a hand reaching out to you, you might not make that step out of the situation you are in. The Outreach Center is a stable place where you can find help and hope...help for dealing with your problems and hope that you won't have to stay in place you're in if you don't want to.
The Outreach Center Addresses Needs Through Programs
Education is the foundation for employment, household management and daily living.
For many of our clients, the childhood years were difficult. Many did not finish high school or receive the basic life skill training that most of us just expect to receive. The Journey Home providees practical tools to assist clients in developing their skills:
- ONE-ON-ONE COACHING
- COMPUTER-AIDED LEARNING MODULES (ON-LIN) FOR GED PREPARATION
- BIBLE STUDIES AND BIBLICAL TEACHING FOR LIFE ISSUES ON CD
- LIBRARY OF BOOKS, FROM CHILDREN'S TO ADULT'S BOOKS
- NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES
- TELEVISION, USED FOR NEWS AND INFORMATIONAL OR EDUCATIONAL
