Support Sojourner for DV Awareness Month!
Updated: Sep 29, 2022
October marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time to spread awareness of the issue of domestic violence and stand with survivors. Sojourner Project supports survivors all year round through legal advocacy, emergency shelter, 24/7 crisis line, and mental health services. We work towards the prevention and elimination of domestic violence via community presentations, professional training, and youth violence prevention education.
For DVAM 2022, Sojourner Project is partnering with four local businesses for a variety of events. Additionally, we are hosting a webinar featuring staff who help our clients work towards healing via therapy & support groups. Read on for ways you can support our work and learn more about domestic violence this October. Thank you!
