The Organization

About Sisters of Sojourn

Sisters of Sojourn was founded in 2000 to raise funds for victims of domestic violence. For over twenty years, Sisters of Sojourn has hosted an annual event in support of Sojourn, the second-oldest domestic violence shelter in California and the primary such facility on the Westside of Los Angeles.

Since 1977, Sojourn has been meeting the needs of thousands of domestic violence survivors each year. Through shelter, support groups, workshops, hotline calls, children’s empowerment programming, legal services and service referrals, Sojourn brings safety, connection, and hope to individuals and families. Sojourn has an annual operating budget of $3 Million to fulfill this mission.

Sojourn is a project of The People Concern, which more broadly addresses the effects of homelessness, poverty, mental and physical illness, abuse and addiction.  Their programs serve the most vulnerable among us to improve their quality of life and become active participants in the community.
