INCREASING SAFETY FOR INDIVIDUALS AND COMMUNITIES SINCE 1979
In the Spotlight
Check out Outreach and Education intern Brandi's second blog in our series on the connection between public health and the prevention of domestic violence. This blog focuses on individual and relationship-level risk and protective factors for domestic violence. Sojourner encourages protective factors such as developing skills to identify healthy and safe relationships and building non-violent problem-solving skills through our SafeU program.
Sojourner is hiring a part-time Maintenance Support staff. Hours are flexible, during the day and typically between 2-5 per week. This position will perform a variety of minor repairs and small “household” type projects such as monthly testing of emergency lighting and elevators, annual cleaning of cold air returns and heat vents, and putting out recycling bins each month.
