The House of Strength
Sojourner Home: The House of Strength is an intensive transitional housing program for women and children who are currently homeless. Women and children are referred to The House of Strength by emergency shelters, in-patient treatment providers and the criminal justice system. The House of Strength provides case management, life-skills training and youth development programs that support women and their children as they recover from immediate trauma and work to rebuild their lives.
This property has 16 dormitory-style units, with communal living and dining spaces. Upon entering The House of Strength, each resident is assigned a Case Manager who helps to set personal goals related to education, employment, family unification, substance use recovery and mental health treatment. The typical length of stay is three to six months. Most women who complete the program at The House of Strength move on to one of Sojourner Home’s other transitional and supportive housing programs.
