Sojourner Center is Getting a Makeover

Experiencing domestic violence and human trafficking is a traumatic experience. That is why for 45 years Sojourner Center has been a safe haven for families escaping violence. However, living in a shelter, even for only a few weeks, can also be stressful. That’s why we’re committed to making Sojourner Center a peaceful and comfortable place to live.

Mega Makeover: Sojourner Center Edition

Evidence suggests one’s environment can directly impact a person’s ability to heal. In fact, there is a growing movement called trauma-informed design in which principles of trauma-informed care are used to create physical spaces that promote safety, well-being, and healing. In June 2021 Sojourner Center received trauma certification from the Arizona Trauma Institute marking the completion of a two-year process that educated employees and evaluated the inner workings of the organization through a trauma-informed lens. Sojourner Center is now one of only a handful of trauma-certified agencies in the state.

Mega Makeover: Sojourner Center Edition

Over the course of 2022, we are giving our residential shelter units a makeover. Each room will receive new furniture including a dresser, a bedside table, a kitchen table set, rugs, lamps, and a sofa or comfy chair. Each room is also getting a fresh coat of paint, art for the walls, cleaned and/or upgraded flooring,  floor fans, bath mats, shower caddies, window treatments, and more. To make our units even homier, we’ll be installing wall-mounted flatscreen televisions, Bluetooth speakers, device charging stations, new hampers, and trash cans. Utilizing trauma-certified design concepts, our hope is that our participants feel like Sojourner Center is giving them a fresh start on a new life.
