Families in Recovery
Recovery is a family affair at Sojourner House and Sojourner House MOMS. Our programs offer supportive services to families with children. Sojourner House helps mothers learn to manage their substance use disorder while helping them to rebuild damaged relationships with their children. Families receive counseling and supportive services to help them navigate life with substance use disorder and break generational cycles of substance use, poverty and trauma.

Sojourner House provides in-patient residential treatment to mothers with substance use disorder and their children. Located in East Liberty, Sojourner House provides 24-hour residential rehabilitation services for 14 families at any given time. Mothers can bring three children with them and stay up to six months while receiving intensive treatment for their substance use disorder.
MOMS Long-Term Housing
Since its inception in 2004, Sojourner House MOMS (Motivation Opportunities Mentoring Spirituality) has provided safe, permanent housing and supportive services for homeless people and their dependent children.
