« on: December 12, 2019, 04:37:20 pm »
This topic has been opened up for anyone in the community to add recommended Victims Resource information to this listing.

This is all about opening up the subject research to anyone in the community that already knows, or comes across a potential resource for victims of any kind of trauma, abuse, or assault.

Please understand we are looking for NonProfit Organizations first.  But, will accept additions to this topic that are business that are for profit.

Please leave as much information you can add here.  But, if you only have time to add the name of an organization, we will further research the rest of the information for each given listing.

The Sojourner's Project
Sojourner Project, often known as Sojourner, was named in honor of Sojourner Truth, a traveling philosopher and orator, a woman who spoke about justice, equality and truth and the need for change.

Sojourner Truth was named Isabella Baumfree. Born a slave, she spoke passionately, advocating for the end of slavery and the recognition of womenís rights. In the 1820s, when still quite a young woman, she escaped from her New York owner after being brutally treated and sold away from her family. By the 1840s, Truth had become a powerful speaker against slavery, often moving her audiences to tears and exclamations of horror with her firsthand accounts of what slaves endured at the hands of cruel masters.  She inspired those who heard her and her voice called many to action on behalf of those who were powerless. 

In taking her name, Sojournerís founders endeavored to honor the principles for which she stood and to continue her efforts to provide hope, safety, and support to those victimized by violence and abuse. Our commitment has not wavered and this is evidenced in our current agency mission and goals.
