Established in 1975, the mission of Sojourner Family Peace Center is to transform lives impacted by domestic violence.
Our primary goals are to ensure the safety of victims of family violence and provide a pathway out of violence for victims and abusers through opportunities to make positive and lasting changes for themselves and their children.
Sojourner Family Peace Center is the largest nonprofit provider of domestic violence prevention and intervention services in Wisconsin, serving over 11,800 clients each year. Sojourner provides an array of support aimed at helping families affected by domestic violence achieve safety, justice and well-being.
In 2019, Sojourner made 80,500 contacts with over 11,800 individuals. Of those served, approximately 59% were African American, 22% Caucasian, 12% Hispanic, and 7% Asian, Native American, mixed race, or other. Nearly 80% of survivors reported an annual household income of less than $15,000, and the vast majority of our clients resided in Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods on the north and south sides of the city.
