Getting Help

Sojourner Truth House is a safe place for women and their children to break the cycle of violence and to heal. If you need a place to:

  • begin your journey of healing in a confidential setting
  • someone to listen, someone to talk to, support, and provide safety planning
  • somewhere to break silence, let your voice be heard, rebuild your self-esteem and support others in their journeys to healing
  • sleep peacefully at night, to be respected and to ask questions without fear of being judged
  • learn new parenting skills and develop closer bonds with your children

The 24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline for Milwaukee County also operates out of the shelter. A caring and compassionate staff offers confidential, individual counseling and safety planning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Shelter Operations are made possible in part by a generous grant from:TMKF_Logo 2015

Sojourner Family Peace Center’s Restraining Order Clinic is the “front door” to the civil justice system for nearly 5,000 individuals each year. Located at the Milwaukee County Courthouse, Advocates at the Restraining Order Clinic can assist with:

  • Completing the necessary paperwork for petitioning the court for orders of protection.
  • Creating safety plans to help protect themselves and their children.
  • Accessing ongoing services to meet their emergency needs.

Employers play an important role in making the workplace safe for victims of domestic violence. A safe work environment includes clear human resource policies, manager training, security, flexible leave and benefit policies and employee education.

SFPC can help employers with training, policies and provide on-site advocacy if needed. Contact us to discuss how we can partner with you to make your workplace safe for victims of domestic violence to come forward.
