Community Impact & Global Connections
When Jesus showed up on the scene, he said that he was all about “good news for the poor.” So, like him, we want to spread good news for the poor, the dejected, the unseen, the broken, the wounded, the outcasts. Through Journey Serves, we hope to spread good news by feeding people, clothing people, helping people back on their feet, cleaning up our local parks, partnering globally in communities like Carrefour, Haiti and Tecate, Mexico.

Opportunities to Serve:
Shelter for the Homeless
For the past 30 years, the San Diego Interfaith Shelter Network (ISN) has provided shelter to more than 9,000 people for more than 237,000 nights. This is made possible through the cooperative efforts of more than 120 congregations working in seven different regions of San Diego. This program provides night-time seasonal shelter, food, and professional case management to San Diego’s situationally homeless by rotating in two week increments as guests in our communities’ congregations.
The San Diego Interfaith Shelter Network cares for short-term homeless men, women, and children by arranging shelter for them at churches throughout the county. Journey has participated in this effort for 5 years. Those helped are situationally homeless, loss of income or unanticipated expenses having left them temporarily homeless.
From October 20 to November 4, Journey will be hosting 12 or so homeless men, women and/or children for the 5th year as a part of JCC’s Annual Shelter. Our guests will spend the night in their short-term home and are gone during the day looking for work and taking care of business. There are tons of opportunities to serve people who need our help and friendship!

· Shelter is provided each night in the Far Room for about 12 people (men, women and children);
