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 an average of 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 serves members of the community experiencing intermittent emergency needs through the food pantry and clothes closet and is one of the only food pantries in the area that provide personal items.

At STH, we serve clients with a holistic approach that provides help and hope for the mind, body and spirit of those we serve.
