Dear Hupy and Abraham,
Thank you for your recent gift to Sojourner Family Peace Center. Your donation ensures survivors of domestic violence have a safe place to sleep, an advocate to support them, and an entire community offering encouragement.
Like you, I give to Sojourner to advocate for human dignity and transform our community. I have served on Sojourner’s Board of Directors for several years, and first got involved after learning about the comprehensive work that Sojourner does for those who are hurting in our community. I believe that everyone deserves safety, and that a life free from violence is a basic human right. I believe that together we can create hope and provide light in dark times for people who are hurting. I know what we are stronger when we stand together.
The need for a safe and peaceful community is still great. Basic human rights, like respect and dignity, are still being denied to many. In 2017, 1,500 more individuals reached out to Sojourner for safety and help. Your generous gift provides crisis housing, system advocacy, and individual support to nearly 12,000 women, children, and families who Sojourner serves each year.
At Sojourner, we know that we can only continue this work if we are in partnership with each of you. You have demonstrated your belief that we can make a difference when we care for each other. Sojourner values the trust you have placed in us, and we assure you that Sojourner remains committed to providing world-class, holistic care to those who are hurting in our community.
I remain grateful for your partnership, and Sojourner looks forward to sharing our successes with you. Thanks to your law firm’s generosity.
President, Sojourner Board of Directors
