The Exchange Club of Murfreesboro recently donated to The Journey Home after Scott Foster, CEO of The Journey Home, spoke at the civic organization's weekly meeting.
The Journey Home is a Christian ministry whose primary focus is to serve the homeless and disadvantaged of Rutherford County – providing practical resources for body, mind and spirit, and encouragement on their journey to economic stability and reintegration into community life.
Homelessness is a complex problem, usually the result of interconnected issues related to poverty and a lack of affordable housing. Its effects are far-reaching, impacting every facet of life. The best solutions involve the entire community through a broad array of programs and services that meet the homeless at their point of need providing them the time, resources and networks necessary to affect lasting change. For more information on The Journey Home visit LoveGodServePeople.org or call 615-809-2644.
