Sojourn Domestic Violence Services
Since 1977, Sojourn, The People Concern’s domestic violence program, 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.
Through shelter, support groups, workshops, hotline calls, children’s empowerment programming, legal services and service referrals, Sojourn brings safety, connection and hope to individuals and families. Sojourn also works to educate the broader community and advance public policy that affirms the rights of oppressed populations.
