Founded in 1969, Journey House has served thousands of clients a year at its three facilities: the Family Learning Center, 1900 W. Washington St., the Youth Center, 2212 W. Greenfield Ave. and the administrative offices at 1818 W. National Ave.
But beginning in late July the services offered at each facility all will be housed under the same roof, when the Journey House Center for Family Learning and Youth Athletics, 2110 W. Scott St., opens its doors.
The long-awaited center began as the vision of former Mayor John Norquist and Michele Bria, now CEO of Journey House, in the late 1990s.
The center will serve students and parents from H.W. Longfellow School, as well as clients of Journey House.
A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday, May 31.
