Sojourner House Accomplishments
- Sojourner House is constantly innovating to meet the needs of our survivors of abuse, and we have grown exponentially over the past 5 years in nontraditional areas to respond to the overwhelming needs of the populations we serve. Our budget and staff have increased 4x in just 5 years, and we updated our mission to be more inclusive, which allows us to serve more clients with wraparound services throughout the entire state.
This summer, we are expanding our offices to include a public location in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, which has only had confidential space up until now.
