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 have recently lost their jobs or experienced other temporary financial setbacks and hardships. Our interviewers 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 that offer assistance in meeting intermittent emergency needs.
STH provides basic health screenings and referrals to local clinics. Clients can access our food pantry, which is one of few in the area that also provides personal products, and we have a clothes closet for women. Having access to these basic services helps bridge the gap for clients as they work through temporary life challenges.
