A BRIEF OVERVIEW:
Journeys in Community Living was established in 1975 as the Rutherford County Adult Activity Center. The organization, which changed its name in 2011, provides community participation services, industrial training services, job training and placement services, special services, residential services and transportation services to more than 120 adults with intellectual disabilities in both Rutherford and Cannon Counties in Middle Tennessee.
Journeys operates the organization with the beliefs that everyone, regardless of disability, has the right to live a healthy and secure life; work at a meaningful job which they enjoy; live in a home of their own with whom they choose; have friends and other relationships in their lives; and to participate in and contribute to their communities.
Throughout all the years and the changes they’ve brought to our organization and the services we provide, it has been the people being supported who have led our journey. Their abilities, their interests and – most importantly – their dreams and aspirations are what have paved the way forward. They continue to lead us even further into the future today!
And while it is difficult to predict where they will be heading over the next several decades—other than more into the community—a few things are certain. The people served by this organization will continue to amaze with their abilities; move and inspire with their courage; and bring joy to the daily lives of those around them.
The journey is never-ending!
Our organization is a 501(c)3 non-profit governed by a board of directors. All of our financials are available to the public and can be obtained at Giving Matters free of charge. Please click here to be taken to our giving matters profile!
