  Do You Want to Help?
  There are several ways you can help, including in-kind donation,
financial contribution, and volunteer service.

Financial Donations Back To Top
  Although Sojourner receives funding from state and local sources, the funding provided does not cover all of the need and demand for services from individuals and families in crisis. Sojourner depends upon the support of the community to help sustain its programs for victims/survivors of domestic violence and their children. The combined generosity of businesses, faith communities, private foundations, groups and individuals helps us provide the necessary assistance. 
  Below are a few examples of how your financial contribution can help:
$35.00 helps offset costs of children’s activity groups
$55.00 helps to feed shelter residents for one day
$250.00 supports time required to obtain an Order for Protection

Community support is essential to the work we do. Please consider supporting Sojourner in whatever way you can and for whatever you can do, we say THANK YOU! All financial gifts to Sojourner are tax-deductible.

Please mail your contribution to:

Tribute Gifts Back To Top

Sojourner will designate your gift to provide a tribute to honor a memory of a loved one or celebrate a special occasion. Simply provide this information with  your gift, and we will notify those you request about this gift in their name.

Dinner Program Volunteer Information:

This is a great way to provide a little extra comfort and care to people going through a difficult time and a great opportunity for people who enjoy cooking to serve together.

Groups of 2-4 people (ages 18+) prepare and dinner for our residents. Shifts are currently booked on a once a month rotation system, but we are open to different frequencies of service as well. We encourage groups to provide the ingredients but are willing to help substitute some items. Recipe ideas are encouraged!

The volunteer shift runs from 3:30-5:15. Dinner is served at 5 p.m. Volunteers prepare and present the meal, residents take care of clean up.
