Who we are

Since 1977, Sojourn has been meeting the emergency and long-term needs of thousands of domestic violence survivors each year.

Sojourn’s mission is to:

  • Provide, without prejudice, shelter and support services to adult and child survivors of domestic violence;
  • Prevent violence through non-dominant child-rearing and the re-envisioning of gender stereotypes using a philosophy of nonviolence and individual empowerment; and

  • Work toward advancing social justice, locally and globally.
