SessionRemoteException and remote directories

I am attempting to automate connectivity to a remote SFTP Server using WinSCP within Powershell. The SFTP Server admins do not want to create a local directory. So, I get a SessionRemoteException with the error below when I attempt a $session.Open. I attempted to catch the exception so I could proceed to a full-path directory provided by the SFTP Server admins, but the $session object is null.

Cannot get real path for '.'.
No such file or directory.
Error code: 2
Error message from server (en): No such file

Is there a way to ignore this exception or specify an alternative remote directory?

So why don't the admins set the home folder to some existing directory?

Thanks for the reply. The explanation made no sense. They cited no issues with the CoreFTP client with a missing home directory and reasoned that it was something I need to change.

Fortunately, after whining, the remote admins have responded to my appeal and created a "home" directory.
