Meet Sarah Leemon. Sarah may seem quiet and soft spoken - she is, but she is fierce in her love for the Lord and the way she lives it out in her life. She is married to DJ and they live in a beautiful home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where they moved to from Green Garden township several years ago. She brings peace, wisdom, order & a committed heart to our organization and it's mission.


Meet Melanie Troyer. Her dedication was always unwavering in any task asked of her. She was our first "donor housing" volunteer and has served faithfully for 6 years providing a safe shelter to 3 of our clients. Melanie has basically been "on-call" to us and has been a true friend to Journey and literal life saver for these clients. She truly has servant's heart for Jesus and, a hearty and contagious laugh that has been such a blessing to us as we have done ministry together!


Meet Rachael Smedberg. Rachael was called to be part of Journey and volunteered faithfully in our shop & as a Journey Guide to several clients the first few years until she had her precious twins. Even when she couldn't be at Journey - Rachael & her husband Jesse supported us at all our events with their little family in tow. If we ever need anything - Rachael makes it happen or finds a way to make it come together. Her great faith is contagious and a gift. Her love & passion as a first generation farmer is real-time motivation and an example of the power of possibilities.

We are humbled and blessed to have all three of these ladies part of Journey and Support Board. Along with Margie & Christine/Co-founders of this grass-roots organization, these 3 stellar individuals make up our Journey Supporting Board. You each have specific and unique giftedness that make you the perfect fit for Journey and the purpose ahead of us. THANK YOU!
