What is Journey House?

Journey House is a Canadian Registered Charity (charity no. 77320 6693 RR0001) that specifically focuses on support for individuals with developmental and intellectual challenges by promoting independent living skills and relationship building. While also encouraging an overall sense of belonging through integrated community living,  these individuals live and learn together. In addition to the basic functions of a home, Journey House relies heavily on a Relational Model of living to provide an environment which supports participation in holistic, inclusive, and interactive creative daily living. This allows for a person-centred approach to foster independence, encourage experience, and create value through authentic connections with other residents and  the community.

Residents of Journey House

The residents of Journey House are able to enjoy their own room with the presence of 3 or 4 other individuals within a single home. Each resident has their own unique experience, strengths, and needs. They all share the main goal of utilizing this natural environment to foster growth and opportunity.

"I like the Journey House because it’s interesting, it’s safe to live in and it’s very fun…free to be independent, do things by myself, learn to make mistakes and learn from them, and take care of yourself”.
