San Jose Obrero Mission

Beginning in 1981 as an emergency shelter for men SJOM has transitioned over its 32 years including a shift to longer-term services in 1999 to successfully meet the changing needs of the homeless population. As testament to its unique services and proven track record SJOM was honored to announce that as of January 2010 we expanded our services from an interim house for 40 men to serve an additional 50 women and children at a second interim house. This significant growth in programs was taken on upon the request of the City of Chicago Department of Family and Support Services based on SJOM’s unique supportive services model and program outcomes. For over 32 years San Jose Obrero Mission (SJOM) has been working to endhomelessness in Chicagoland by offering men women and children 24-hour living accommodations and an individualized program of case management career coaching life skills training referral and housing placement through our Men in Crisis Program in Chicago’s Pilsen (Lower West Side) community and our
