Sojourner Center’s Transitional Housing Program is a program designed to support individuals and families improve their quality of life and end the cycle of domestic violence and human trafficking. We have 32 transitional housing apartments where families can stay and participate in services for up to twenty-four months with the goal being for them to obtain permanent/stable housing.
Transitional housing participants have access the same services as those residing in our crisis shelter including: case management services, and psycho-educational groups and classes, and access to free medical care.
Through active participation in program, participants work with an assigned case manager in an individualized self-sufficiency plan. Participants develop goals to overcome barriers and work towards self-sufficiency.
These goals focus on safety, self-sufficiency and domestic violence education to support them in overcoming trauma impacts by utilizing a strengths-based approach and providing a continuum of care through coordination of services.
Transitional housing participants have access to free healthcare in an on-site clinic through our partnerships with Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Phoenix Children’s Hospital Medical Mobile Unit.
Our Transitional Housing Program is currently working in expanding services to support participants’ employability efforts through additional employment and education support services, financial literacy groups, and job readiness workshops.
