In The Community
In addition to direct client services, Sojourn also provides services in and for the community! Our efforts include prevention, advocacy, and collaborative projects.
Education and advocacy are critical to the prevention of further relationship abuse and community violence as a whole. By facilitating trainings for elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as for universities, fellow service providers, nonprofit organizations, law enforcement agencies, and companies, Sojourn endeavors to offer prevention education for all ages, professions, and areas of life.
