About Journey Home
Journey Home is a Christ-centered nonprofit Maternity Home existing to encourage and empower the women that walk through their doors to live the lives God intended for them to live.
Journey Home offers a comfortable family environment in which to learn skills and acquire tools for success in life‘s journey. We will offer housing, spiritual encouragement and practical support, and will work with other organizations to provide birthing classes, parenting classes, educational classes and similar opportunities.
Journey Home’s Mission: To be a nurturing home for both mother and child, offering love, accountability, and support along their journey.
Journey Home’s Vision: To be the maternity home the community trusts to recommend when a need arises.
Journey Home was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in April of 2019 and 40 weeks later opened their doors. They are now listed on a national Hotline for homeless and pregnant women and Organizations and Churches have come alongside Journey Home in one way or another to help the success of the organization. Journey home also receives referrals from Adoption Agencies, Pregnancy Care Centers, Womens Shelters, Hotlines and Journey Home website.
Founder and Director, Billie Beasley, shared, “Pregnant women need shelter in Montgomery County. This group in our society is hard to number because they are very transient. They are couch surfing and just barely getting by. Journey Home has had calls from ladies living in a car and from people who have put someone up in a hotel until they could find her a home. They have had women coming out of rehab needing a fresh start. They have had several young women aging out of foster care. One of their residents was running from an abusive relationship.”
