We are excited to announce that J.D. Kious was recently elected to serve a 3-year term on the Board of Directors of Journeys in Community Living. This will mark J.D.’s third term on the Board. He is also a past Board Chair. Journeys in Community Living is dedicated to supporting adults with disabilities in choosing and realizing their visions of where and how they live, work, and socialize.
JICL was established in 1975 as the Rutherford County Adult Activity Center. The organization, which changed its name in 2011, provides community participation services, industrial training services, job training and placement services, special services, residential services and transportation services to more than 120 adults with intellectual disabilities in both Rutherford and Cannon Counties in Middle Tennessee.
Journeys operates with the beliefs that everyone, regardless of disability, has the right to live a healthy and secure life; work at a meaningful job which they enjoy; live in a home of their own with whom they choose; have friends and other relationships in their lives; and to participate in and contribute to their communities.
