There are many ways in which you can make a gift to Sojourner House. Your support will help fund advocacy, housing, and other support services for all those who have experienced domestic abuse. Your gift will also support an array of prevention and education services offered in the communities we serve. These types of donations also help us address gaps in services that other types of funding don't cover, which helps us provide more comprehensive services to all victims of domestic violence.
