With feelings of relief and excitement, families look forward to and prepare for another school year.

On Monday, July 31st, Sojourner Truth House hosted a Back to School event for STH clients and their children. This event consisted of grilled hotdogs, snow cones, popcorn, candy, and a special appearance from Cute as a Cupcake from Merrillville, Indiana. While the treats were delicious, families also received practical help.

Dr. Jodi Allen conducted physicals, a usual requirement for attending school, at no cost to clients. Backpacks were given to each child that included basic school supplies. Supplies were provided by Geminus Corporation, part of Regional Care Group.
