Joy’s House, 2007

Our Beginnings
Joy’s House founder, Tina McIntosh, first became interested in the idea of opening an adult day service when she volunteered at a center in Muncie, Indiana as a freshman at Ball State University. One Master’s degree and ten years later, she found the courage to leave her successful job as an event planner and began the complicated process of opening an adult day center.

As she shared her dream with others, she could see the passion grow inside of them. Before she knew it, people began to support her dream, and many formed the Board of Directors, Board Advisors and committee members for what we now know as Joy’s House. Together, they brought Tina’s dream to reality.

After an exhausting time planning, writing, and applying, the federal government granted not-for-profit status and Joy’s House—the organization was born in 1999.
