About Our Organization
Sojourner Truth House (STH) is a day center located in Gary, Indiana, that serves homeless and at-risk women and their children. Founded by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ in 1997, STH serves more than 2,092 clients each month.
Sojourner Truth House assists clients staying in local shelters who come to the day center for help obtaining benefits, referrals to community support agencies, basic skills and employment training, healthcare screenings and referrals, counseling for addiction and other issues, and assistance with finding housing.
After finding housing, clients can become a part of our TOPPS program – or Transitional Outreach Program Participants. TOPPS clients maintain support through therapeutic programs and ongoing case management.
Sojourner Truth House also welcomes members of the community – clients who come to the food pantry for help meeting intermittent basic household needs or are in need of clothing.
At STH, we serve clients with a holistic approach that provides help and hope for the mind, body and spirit of the women and children we serve.
