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.

TANGO’s Impact on Sojourner House

Tango has been a great help to Sojourner House.  We have utilized Tango’s online resources and participated in the free training opportunities, including one on how to create mission-focused digital content in-house.  Sojourner House furthers its mission through various partnerships and collaborations.  Tango has helped us to connect to other community-based organizations and resources, and we have helped Tango to connect to other Rhode Island-based community organizations.  We believe that by working together we can effect positive change in our community.
