I am a proud board member of Sojourners' Alliance in Moscow.

I am proud of the fact that we are helping men and women who, for whatever reason, have fallen into homelessness and have no way out.

Here, they are offered the opportunity to successfully work their way into a productive life with real hope for their futures.

Upon arrival, they are required to get a job, begin paying a $350/month program fee, remain drug, alcohol, indoor smoking and vaping free, while meeting with a case manager one day a week.

There is zero tolerance for violence of any kind. The 10 single men share living space on site and may share meals that they can prepare in the community kitchen.

They are responsible for keeping the kitchen and their living quarters clean. The women and families live in four apartments across the street and are responsible for their own cooking and cleaning.

We gratefully accept nonperishable food item donations for them.

I am proud that we have the most caring and dedicated director and staff; and that we support a full-time phone access point specialist who directs people to the proper organization for help they need.

We have a full-time case manager who meets with our Project Warmth (Federal Rapid Rehousing Program) residents off site.

We work closely with the Latah Recovery Center and other sources of help for our residents.

We look forward to seeing you at our first annual Huckleberry Fest waffle breakfast ($10/plate, under age 5 free) from 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Sunday at the 1912 Center.

You will have the opportunity to meet our director, staff and board members and hear from some of our past residents regarding their time at Sojourners’ Alliance and beyond.
