The Role of a Facilitator

A Facilitator is a committed individual who also lives within the home but insures that an environment is established and maintained within the home which fosters and allows for the practice of independent living. This person acts as a life skill coach, a friend, a roommate, a guide, a teacher, among many more other roles. Each of these are acted out with respect, patience, understanding, and without person judgment. In return the facilitator is financially compensated and given a very unique opportunity while also receiving numerous accommodations and benefits. The specific duties or roles of the facilitator may change depending on the needs of the other Journey House residents, in order to best model and assist with independent living. The facilitator must prioritize and model life skills in a manner that promotes health, productive living as well as safety and wellbeing, at all times.

Laurie Mckee – Facilitator

For Laurie, being a part of the Journey House community is a ‘return to her roots’. Before her career in the service industry, Laurie enjoyed working with high school students with developmental exceptionalities as well as working with ‘Make a Wish Foundation’ as a facilitator. Laurie enjoys spending time in nature and engaging in meaningful conversations. You can often find her watching hockey, doing a puzzle, or on a walk with her housemates!
