Sojourner House of Hope is located in Williamsport Pennsylvania it is a local ministry umbrellaed under Sojourner Truth Ministry (our local soup kitchen). The House of Hope is a six month communal, transitional living program designed for women coming out of homelessness. This program will address virtually each point of need to help women take important steps in a direction away from dependency on society and towards self-sufficiency. House of Hope provides the necessary links between the Resident and the community, with the goal of providing the Resident with the resources to solve her own problems. By making healthy choices, such as living a substance-free life, developing and maintaining a budget, establishing a healthy and supportive circle of friends, and maintaining steady employment. The hope is to help the Residents stop self-destructive behavior and avoid future contact with the criminal justice system. House of Hope seeks to be a place of safety and healing through the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ, providing homeless women with a supportive transitional home and Christ based care in order to address the root issues contributing to their state of need, so they can be empowered through healthy, sound, living to develop a plan and transition into autonomy, sustainability and community.
House of Hope believes that women can overcome dependency, barriers, and challenges; moving from a state of homelessness to thriving in the community through the transforming power of Jesus Christ.
