Next Steps

How Do We Accomplish Our Goal?

Step 1: Placemaking

The Texas Workforce Commission provides workforce training.

Journey will continue to utilize its workforce to provide placemaking experiences aimed at serving the non-profit community, while also hosting select events for profitability and sustainability.

Step 2: Youth Engagement

Receive State Contract for Supervised Independent Living Site.

Connect with Houston area grants for housing youth.

TIRZ Funds.

Leverage the young people as staff to do jobs on the property (videography, administrative, media/marketing, groundskeeping and maintenance, hospitality, and fabrication).

Step 3: Sustainability

Housing Reach (32 young people).

Begin creating independent housing alternatives (Youth Build) - Increase capacity.

Journey will fully transition to day retreats and events.

Step three will be completed by the end of year two of this implementation.

How Might We?

The goal is to secure at least 6 service and workforce development agencies involved in a collaborative partnership capacity and at least 32 underhoused students age 18-24 signed up by December 2025. To build brand visibility and profitability, we would like to provide day retreats/events and align with capacity building partners to create independent housing alternatives.

Our Goal

JourneyHTX’s goal is to become a “life-giving” program.

The UCC Motto

Doing justice, seeking peace and building community are central to the identity of the United Church of Christ.

Our mission is to provide a safe and welcoming space for individual and community reflection, respite, and renewal.
