About New Journey
New Journey San Angelo is a ministry to foster care with a focus on aging-out youth. We have several ongoing projects to aid these youth and strive to ensure better outcomes for this community. The Colony, a tiny-home campus, is our first major goal. This will be a living facility for youth as they transition to adulthood and will provide opportunities for education, instruction, and guidance.
Youth that age out of the foster system are most often given a fond farewell and, for the most part, expected to enter adulthood alone. Approximately 24 youth in our community face this challenge every year. Our facility and program will help ensure they are prepared for independence..
Founded by Tim and Esther Dickson, and Sam Crumrine, all foster experienced parents with varied life experiences, we strive to assist the foster community in several ways. Our board members are Chelsea Monk, Isai Garcia, Michelle Zrubek, William Tucker and Chelsea Smith.
The first big step in New Journey’s future is The Dorm. This will be a large house/dorm housing 6 foster youth, 2 peer mentors, a foster experienced family and an elder foster experienced couple. The youth will be required to further their education beyond high school and learn various life skills that will prepare them for independent living beyond tasks required for survival.
