Sojourner House is at the forefront of innovative educational and training programs. We believe that by educating youth, professionals, and the community, we can create a world that is free from domestic and sexual violence.

We provide training and education for various audiences, including:

  • Students of all ages
  • Education Professionals
  • Criminal Justice Professionals
  • Medical Professionals
  • Community Members
  • Victims and Survivors

We believe that domestic violence is a community concern; therefore, we engage our community members in interactive presentations that inform them about the dynamics of domestic and sexual violence, positive ways to support survivors of abuse, healthy relationship development, and how to prevent violence from occurring in our communities. 

We will work with you to develop a specialized training to fit your unique training needs. In order to provide comprehensive, meaningful, and specialized training programs, we do charge a nominal fee. However, if cost is a barrier, we are happy to work out other funding arrangements. Please contact Sarah DeCataldo, our Director of Operations, at 401-861-6191 or sdecataldo@sojournerri.org for more information or to schedule something for your group today.
