VISION FOR MILWAUKEE

Sojourner will be one of the first in the nation to house holistic services for victims of domestic violence of all ages, under one roof. In addition to moving our current shelter, Sojourner Truth House, and the 24-hour hotline, Sojourner is joining with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to locate a Child Advocacy Center at the site. This will provide a more integrated system of services for adults and children who are impacted by domestic violence and child abuse.
