Donate Goods

When fleeing abuse, a survivor often has to leave behind their home and most, if not all, of their possessions. The items you use in your own home are the very items needed by the families who come to Sojourner Center.


Sojourner Center’s Volunteer Program gives individuals, companies, churches, civic groups, students, schools, and families—anyone with the desire to make a difference—the opportunity to help overcome the impact of domestic violence.
