The Mary Kay Foundation published a blog article today highlighting Sojourner Center’s BRAIN Program and Pet Companion Shelter. The foundation is a strong supporter of Sojourner Center.
“I only planted an acorn, and a giant oak has grown …”
Mary Kay told attendees for the Governor’s Conference on Women in Business in 1985.
That statement holds true for the shelter grants distributed each year. Many times, the $20,000 that a shelter receives one year will help them meet needs and offer services that last far into the future.
The Sojourner Center in Phoenix currently pilots two of what I’d call “acorn” programs: the BRAIN Program and the Pet Companion Shelter.
Both programs are Sojourner’s solutions to some of the biggest hurdles in domestic violence.
