History of the JourneyCare Juniors



The JourneyCare Juniors is a youth service group founded by Mary Beaubien, Laura Horak and Tricia Johnson in 2011 in Barrington that formerly was known as the Mark H. Beaubien Memorial Junior Hospice Group. The late State Representative Mark Beaubien, Jr. and his wife, Dee, worked tirelessly as advocates for quality end-of-life care. Together, they supported JourneyCare in many ways, including providing guidance, relationship-building for grant funding and sponsoring special events to raise money for the JourneyCare Foundation. They shared this passion with their children and grandchildren, inspiring them to become active volunteers as well and this sparked the founding of a Junior Hospice group for younger students looking to develop a long-term, meaningful relationship with a special cause.
