These young adults may have possibly become homeless due to someone else’s (parents or guardians) poor choices.<br /><br />The Journey is a nonprofit organization with the main goal of supporting these young adults in becoming healthy and successful adults. We recently have been blessed to receive our official 501C3 letter on December 17, 2018. This amazing Christmas gift now allows us to begin to put our programs into action. Through successful fundraising we plan to purchase a home (our facility) and fill it with all the necessities needed for these young adults to thrive. The funds will also allow us to sustain the house (utilities &amp; upkeep) and provide programming (including staff) for a year.<br /><br />Please sponsor our event, Joy Comes in the Morning, and help us provide a choice for young adults that leads them to becoming positive assets for our community. This event will take place at Sweetwater Sound on Saturday May 11, 2019 from 6:00 - 9:00 PM.</p> 5501 US 30 Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac

They’d even go so far as to call themselves “misfits,” but with their fourth major label album, FINGERPRINTS (The Valory Music Co.), they’re finally embracing what makes them different once and for all.“With 17 years of experience comes a little bit of wisdom and freedom in knowing who you are,” says lead singer Mike Eli. “And what you’re really good at.”Although their sound has evolved over time, what they’re good at has always been the same &#8211; organic, live-show focused Country dripping with authenticity and perfected in clubs, amphitheaters and stadiums from coast to coast.This summer, the road will take them from California to Maine, headlining shows with a set of brand new &#8211; but classic sounding &#8211; Eli Young Band tunes. And it will likely be just as much fun for them as it is for fans.</span></p> 5501 US Hwy 30 West Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
