“When I left Sojourn House after the two year program I no longer felt like a newcomer. After I left I was really ready to integrate into the community.
While living in Sojourn House I took part of all the workshops, activities and events provided. There was so much to know and learn about this new country and to have someone to tell you how things work and where I can go for help was so helpful. I received helpful advice regarding the daycare process, finding schools nearby, resources and an endless supply of information
Sojourn House was a group of people supporting you, we became a family”.
