Journey Home is a comprehensive and supportive program for individuals experiencing homelessness. Journey Home is designed to provide a safe place for unsheltered persons to reside as they are connected to supportive services. Access to resources such as employment, mental health services and supplemental assistance will reduce many of the barriers which prevent individuals from obtaining and maintaining permanent housing.
Journey Home has an Emergency Shelter, transitional housing units, and helps clients find and maintain permanent housing. Journey Home, First Presbyterian Church, Bethany Lutheran Church, and other organizations in town have partnered with Katy Trails Community Health to bring affordable or free medical care to Warrensburg through a mobile clinic each Tuesday. Every Thursday, Katy Trails or the Compass Health Network provide affordable or free dental care. Tuesday & Thursday, Journey Home organizes a breakfast and hot lunch at First Presbyterian Church of Warrensburg for the community, but especially for those in need. First Presbyterian Church is open from 8AM-3PM on Tuesday & Thursday. The Shop is another mission of Journey Home. The Shop takes donated household items and offers them for free to the community on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 1PM-4PM.
Journey Home is not the project of any particular organization or church, but is intended to be a place of support which is strongly endorsed and maintained by the Johnson County community. The board is seeking grant opportunities, however commitment from the community to maintain the program through donations, financial contributions, and volunteer involvement is an absolute necessity if the program is to be sustainable long term.
If you, your church, or your group/organization are interested in helping Journey Home, please visit our Shelter page, JCRC page, and The Shop pages for opportunities and continue reading below to see other donation links!
We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to seeing you!
