San Jose Obrero Mission (SJOM) is a transitional housing program created for homeless, adult men in Chicago's Pilsen community. The program operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week; participants may be residents in the program for up to 120 days.
The program offers a safe community setting that includes nutritious meals, and a warm, and attractive residential environment. The primary goal of the program is to assist and support participants as they seek to stabilize their lives and prepare to move to a more independent living situation.
Clients are offered on-site case management, life skills training, and housing services. Through its linkages SJOM provides referrals to a broad range of services as well.
Though SJOM’s services are offered on a non-discriminatory basis to men of all races, religions, sexual orientation, and national origins, the program has a specific focus on the needs of the Latino community.
