Matthew 25 Resource 3/10/10-Sojourners' Alliance (Moscow, ID)

Sojourners' Alliance is a private, nonprofit organization working toward a vision of dignity and equality for all people. Our mission is to promote the personal growth, empowerment, and self-sufficiency of people in transition by providing decent housing affordable to low-income persons, basic services, education in life and interpersonal skills, counseling, and opportunities for integration into the community.

The organization began in 1991 as the YWCA of the Palouse. Its shelter, the Sojourner Truth House, originally housed homeless women and children. In 1996, the name was officially changed to Sojourners' Alliance, and in 1999, work began on the new shelter site, which is where we are still located today. The new location and buildings allowed for the shelter to begin offering services to not only women and their children, but single men and women as well.
