Sojourner House Program
Housing Forward’s mission is to transition people from housing crisis to housing stability. The agency serves nearly 2,000 individuals annually from the onset of a housing crisis to its resolution, preventing homelessness, and providing stable housing for the most vulnerable members of the community. One of the programs developed by the agency is the Sojourner House which is an interim housing program in Oak Park for individuals with disabilities and mobility issues, individuals who have been discharged from a hospital and are in need of respite care, as well families with minor children.
