Sojourner Center’s Service Delivery Model is designed to empower survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking by providing them with the tools and resources they need to transform their lives. We believe in offering survivors opportunities for decision-making, goal-setting, skill-building, and trauma-healing within our programs.

Our approach begins with acknowledging the common challenges survivors may face upon entering our programs. These challenges include a risk of homelessness, unemployment, feelings of shame and isolation, food insecurity, low self-esteem, and generational cycles of violence. Additionally, we address issues such as mental health needs, lack of support systems, substance use disorders, physical health problems, and impulsive behaviors.

Survivors accessing our programs have a range of services available to them. These programs include Emergency Shelter, Transitional Housing, Community Outreach, Child and Youth Services, Pet Companion Services, our Donation Resource Center, and Lay Legal Advocacy.

Some of the resources and services we offer include a 24/7 hotline, individualized case management, safety planning, connection to community resources, workforce development, housing support, psycho-educational groups, nutritional support, medical care, and mental health services. With these resources, we aim to help survivors live self-sufficient and empowered lives, free from abuse.

Our ultimate goal is to see survivors achieve feelings of safety, employment and economic stability, safe and stable housing, knowledge of community resources, and self-regulation skills. Through our comprehensive approach, we strive to support survivors in overcoming their challenges and building a brighter future for themselves and their families.
