GIVE TIME & TALENT

We are proud of the success Journey to New Life clients have achieved in such a short time, but we can’t do it alone! One of the reasons our costs stay low and more funding goes directly toward client services is because we have a large roster of volunteers who give their time and talent every month. Journey to New Life is always looking for:

  • Office help Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, any time between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

  • Client mentors to provide guidance and serve as life-skill coaches, training provided

  • Donation receivers and sorters

  • Gardeners to help with our annual planting and tending

  • Movers to pick up and deliver donations as well as help clients on their move-in day

  • Healthcare professionals

  • Any other professional skills

GIVE GOODS

We gratefully accept donations of food, new or gently used clothing, furniture and household items. Most-needed items include:

  • New women’s and men’s undergarments

  • Casual, and comfortable, work shoes

  • Jeans and work pants

  • Bedroom furniture, including bed frames, dressers, side tables and new mattresses

  • Kitchen utensils, pots and pans and dishes

  • Kitchen and bathroom linens

We also always need office supplies like file folders, copy paper, tape, scissors, etc.

GIVE TREASURE

We rely 100% on the generous support of donors for the operation of Journey House and our Emergency Assistance programs. Without you, it’s impossible to continue this vital work that changes lives and makes our community safer to live, work and raise a family in.

CHANGE A LIFE TODAY

“People come to us with histories of trauma, drug addiction, homelessness, unemployment, family abandonment and without much more than the clothes on their backs. They leave here drug-free, employed, reunited with families, safely housed and on their way to a life of success and fulfillment.”

Taylor • UMKC Intern (MSW)
