 Welcome to Sojourner House


If you are in immediate danger and need emergency assistance, call 9-1-1. 


Sojourner House is a comprehensive domestic violence agency.  Every day, we serve victims of relationship violence by providing shelter, advocacy, referrals, and other resources.  In our mission to end violence, we also work in our surrounding communities to provide violence prevention education programs. We know that violence can happen in a cycle, and it is our mission to help interrupt and prevent that cycle from continuing. 

We recognize domestic violence as any form of violence (physical, emotional, verbal, digital, financial, sexual, and more) in any type of relationship.  We believe that no one deserves violence in a relationship.


Do You Need Assistance?

Consider talking to Sojourner House advocate.  Advocates assist victims of violence as they navigate their path towards a violence-free life.  Advocates make recommendations and connect victims with helpful resources, but most of all, advocates listen.  They do not judge, give advice, or pressure victims to make changes before they are ready.

Need a referral or resource?  Want to talk to an advocate?  Our confidential Help Line is always available.  Call us at:  401-765-3232.  Appointments are also available.
