What is the Sojourner Foundation?
For 40 years, Sojourner Family Peace Center has worked diligently to transform the lives of women, men and children impacted by domestic violence. We offer a broad continuum of supports and services for victims and their children, including crisis housing, system advocacy and individual support, as they take their first brave steps toward self-sufficiency and freedom from abuse. The Sojourner Foundation was established in June 2014. While Sojourner Family Peace Center continues to provide the services and programming for women and families impacted by domestic violence, the Foundation provides a vehicle to generate the resources needed to do this work. All revenue of Sojourner Foundation exclusively supports Sojourner Family Peace Center.
Your contribution to Sojourner is an investment in the health and safety of families in our community. As the largest nonprofit provider of domestic violence prevention and intervention services in Wisconsin, we have the incredible and rewarding responsibility of serving families and coordinating with other groups and agencies in our community to deliver services that mend the body and restore the spirit. Our programs and services include the 24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline and our Restraining Order Clinic, Sojourner Truth House Shelter and Beyond Abuse program.
Consider giving a gift that will allow us to continue to provide the shelter, safety and support that is so desperately needed in our community.
