Community Based Clients
Sojourner Truth House's community based clients are women, children and men who are housed but in need of basic assistance. Some of them have recently lost their jobs or have been evicted from their place of residence. Our interviewers take the time to speak with clients individually and identify their needs. We are their advocates and their listening ears. By establishing a trusting relationship with our community based clients, we are able to refer them to other agencies and provide them access to our food pantry. We also have a clothes closet for women. In addition, we provide health screenings and referrals to local clinics. Sometimes these basic services are all clients need to get back on their feet.
