Sojourner House

Domestic Violence Shelter

As domestic violence victims take important steps to reclaim their lives, it is often necessary to move away from the abuser. Sojourner House's Safe House is in an undisclosed location and serves as immediate, safe, temporary housing for abused women and their children. Once there, advocates help residents work on their goals and provide emotional support for the duration of their stay, as well as follow-up care once they've moved to more permanent, safe housing. Our staff also provides information about domestic abuse, case management services, referrals, and educational programs. Each resident's length of stay at our Safe House depends upon her personal situation.
Our Safe Home is fully handicap accessible. Women and their children are provided with 24-hour locked and secure shelter and comprehensive services through Sojourner House's network of local resources and service providers. Residents participate in a number of programs designed to help them process the various effects of domestic abuse.

Sojourner House also offers a transitional housing program for victims of domestic violence and their children. Transitional housing may only be provided to victims exiting the Safe House, those who are homeless or in need of transitional housing as a result of fleeing a situation of domestic violence/dating violence, or those for whom emergency shelter services or other crisis intervention services are unavailable or insufficient.
Transitional housing is the bridge to self-sufficiency and permanent housing for our clients. In addition to seeking permanent housing, clients have the opportunity to establish goals and learn skills to work toward economic stability.
For more information about our residential services, please call our hotline at 401-765-3232.
