Sojourner Truth House - Gary, Indiana


Who We Are

Sojourner Truth House, a 501(c) 3 not for profit organization located in Gary, Indiana, sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ (PHJC) that serves homeless and at-risk women and their children through three streams of service.

1. Clients staying in local shelters come to the day center for help obtaining benefits, referrals to community support agencies, basic skills and employment training, healthcare screenings and referrals, counseling and assistance with finding housing.

2. Once they have housing, Transitional Outreach Program Participants (TOPPS) clients maintain support through therapeutic programs and ongoing case management.

3. Community clients come to the food pantry for help meeting intermittent basic household needs.

Sojourner Truth House addresses these three streams of service with a holistic approach that provides help and hope for the mind, body and spirit of the women and children we serve.
