Sojourner House and Sojourner House’s Mentoring, Opportunity, Motivation, and Spirituality (MOMS) program provide compassionate, faith-based residential recovery services to mothers and children in the Pittsburgh area. Together, we help addicted mothers learn to break the intergenerational cycle of poverty and chemical abuse while rebuilding damaged relationships with their children. Sojourner House believes women can shatter the chains of addiction and hopelessness when surrounded by what means most to them: their children.
Pennsylvania Organization for Women in Early Recovery (POWER)
POWER’s mission is to help women reclaim their lives from the disease of addiction to alcohol and other drugs, and to reduce the incidence of addiction in future generations.
