Residential Services

Sojourner Center is comprised of two campuses: a crisis shelter and a transitional apartment complex. Sojourner Center staff provides a continuum of care services to thousands of women and children fleeing domestic violence from all over the country. Our services range from supporting the basic needs of a family to providing residential and childcare programs.

In FY2016, Sojourner Center provided housing to over 1,000 individuals impacted by domestic violence and reached nearly 10,000 individuals through community outreach efforts. These services included crisis and transitional housing, community-based and lay-legal services, as well as education and awareness.

Sojourner provides:

  • Up to 120 days of emergency shelter services in a secure living area with 24-hour staff.
  • Up to 2 years of supportive services through 32 transitional living apartments.
  • Comprehensive childcare services, such as access to daily childcare available through our onsite 4 Star Quality First, ADHS licensed Child Development Center. Last year, over 190 children benefitted from care in our Child Development Center.

All women and families who reside at Sojourner Center are assigned personal case managers and advocates to support them with safety, healing, education, housing, self-sufficiency and independence. Case managers and advocates meet on a continuous basis with the women throughout their stay in the emergency shelter and transitional housing program, as well as provide resources and referrals for other programs or support services.

Additionally, resources are available in the areas of domestic violence education, safety planning, employment, housing, financial literacy, food & nutrition, and transportation. With help from community partners, we are proud to provide the following services to help participants:
