Business Planning Project Complete

Journey HouseRaising funds for nonprofits can be difficult and more nonprofits are creating earned income streams. Journey House (, which provides services to former foster youth, get lots of great donations, many of which help their clients settle into new homes as they age out of the foster care system. Because they get so many donations, they’ve started having semi-annual yard sales for all the items that their clients don’t need. They wondered if there was business potential there. Could they start a thrift store which would generate ongoing income? JRP volunteer Louise, an entrepreneur, has helped Journey House with the first phase of a business plan, helping decide whether it’s feasible, how it could be launched with minimal risk and what Journey House can put into place now to build a foundation for a business operation that’s very different than their current services. Journey House Exec. Dir. praised Louise’s honesty, insight, knowledge and warmth for helping them figure out whether to move forward with planning. The long-term outcome of Louise’s project will be more income to support young people with no other support system. Thank you, Louise!
