Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. Hebrews 13:15

Praise God for His provision for The Journey Home. He has met every need each day of the past and the present and will continue to for the future. He is faithful!

Please join us Saturday, August 28th as we celebrate what God has done. The flyer with information is attached. We look forward to praising God together and enjoying fellowship with you.

TJH is so thankful for our dedicated volunteers. We wanted to let you know some important information. The tool for the abuse prevention training course is being revamped. Armatus is changing to Praesidium Academy. For those of you who have completed the training, you may get an email inviting you to use the new set-up. Please disregard this notice as you have already completed the requirements to be a volunteer. For those of you who have not done the volunteer training, the site will be out of order a few days in mid-July. If you have already started the training course you may want to finish it before mid-July or wait until the new tool is ready.
