THE STORY:

San Jose Obrero Mission (SJOM) provides a safe haven for participants as they work to secure permanent housing and improve their lives. Through a holistic approach, SJOM staff assess and address each client’s immediate crisis, and provide wrap-around supportive services toward securing income and stable housing. Case managers work with participants to identify the particular problems that led to their homelessness and create an Individualized Service Plan to addresses those causes. 

As the client works on individual goals outlined in their plan, SJOM staff works with the participant to identify, secure, and manage income through coaching, training, and one-on-one assistance with job searches. This process is led by a case manager specializing in job readiness who meets weekly with clients to guide and support their efforts, assisting with resume writing, conducting mock interviews, and facilitating job placement. Through a partnership with The Resurrection Project, SJOM will expand its services and offer more resources, including increased financial literacy education.

Recently, SJOM was able to help a 32 year old single mother and her nine year old son escape a domestic violence situation. A Panamanian immigrant and limited English speaker, the mother was referred to SJOM by an aldermanic office. Once she arrived at SJOM, she was an active participant and attended all activities and events. She had no income when she came to SJOM, but through the support of SJOM's case managers, she was able to gain full-time employment and save enough income for her and her son to move into their own apartment in less than one month.
