Sojourner House at PathStone serves homeless women and children by providing housing, self-sufficiency skills, and education programs, including afterschool tutoring and performing arts classes for kids. When families arrive at Sojourner House, they are immediately paired with a case manager who helps them set goals and work through the underlying problems that caused their homelessness, such as mental illness, poverty, addiction, inadequate education, domestic violence, or abuse. We give families the tools they need to be successful, and then offer long-term support so that they continue to thrive after we place them in permanent housing.
Temporary Transitional Housing
Our transitional housing program provides shelter in a community-living environment where women and their children can focus intensively on working through the problems that caused their homelessness. In this program, our staff provides individualized counseling, life skills training, referrals to services, and crisis intervention when needed. During their 3-6 month stay, the women share household responsibilities, enjoy family-style dinners, attend community meetings, and attend classes in money management, parenting, cooking and nutrition, healthy relationships, job readiness, and more. For more information, please visit our transitional housing program page.
Permanent Supportive Housing
In our supportive housing program, women and their children live independently in 1-, 2-, or 3-bedroom apartments at Sojourner facilities. Though the women’s schedules are less structured, our staff still provides on-site case management, and sobriety support. The staff also organizes special events and celebrations to foster a sense of community. For more information, please visit our permanent housing page.
For Sojourner House graduates who live in the wider community, our staff still offers individual case management, referrals to area agencies, family unification support, and enrichment programs for children through our outreach services program. Whenever women need it, the Sojourner House team is ready to provide support and encouragement. For more information, please visit our outreach services page.
Dreamseeds Children’s Programs
Sojourner House at PathStone offers academic tutoring and performing arts classes five days a week after school through our Dreamseeds Children’s Programs. Dreamseeds provides individual attention and support to all Sojourner House children, many of whom have experienced homelessness, poverty, domestic violence, or neglect. During the summer, the children participate in the Dreamseeds Summer Experience, an enrichment day camp that allows them to play sports, learn to garden, explore the outdoors, and prevent summer learning loss. For a complete listing of Dreamseeds programs and activities, please see the Dreamseeds page.
Sojourner House at PathStone provides shelter, structure, strength, and inspiration to women, their families, and others in need so they are prepared to lead responsible and meaningful lives.
