House PicHow we deliver our mission

Journey House was founded by Tim Mayworm in 1983 after seeing the many unmet needs that youth who have “aged-out” of the foster care experience. ¬†Journey House’s doors have been open to youth for 34 years, providing shelter, offering support, instilling hope, and giving every youth who comes through a place to call home.

It is the goal of every board member, director, program manager, advocate, and each volunteer to live out this mission of helping former foster youth succeed after leaving the foster care system.
