2021 Victorian Tea

Greetings from the Executive Director

Dear Lindsey,

As we move forward into the next season of our lives, I can’t help but reflect on this past year and the strength of the Sojourner House team. Our staff demonstrated extraordinary resilience throughout the pandemic and reflected their commitment to our mission of being the beacon of light for families impacted by Substance Use Disorders. As essential workers, our staff prioritized the safety and well-being of our families and continued to inspire hope in them despite all unknowns of a pandemic.

I want to say thank you to all of our Sojourner House and Sojourner House MOMS employees for being symbols of hope and healing. Thank you for showing dignity and respect during difficult times and for choosing to smile even though you were worried on the inside. Thank you for showing our families that we care and that recovery is possible. And thank you for upholding the 30 years of our mission and vision. 

As the organization embarks upon its 30th anniversary, I am honored to be a part of the Sojourner House Family. Thirty years of providing a safe, healing place for mothers and children impacted by addiction speaks to the long history of employees, volunteers, board members, and supporters committed to serving the greater good. Together, we've held space and reduced the stigma and judgment that happen way too often for mothers diagnosed with Substance Use Disorder.

I often say we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. As we stand on 30 years of stewardship, zeal, and faith, we are motivated to move Sojourner House’s mission forward with 30 more years of hope, healing, and keeping families together to overcome addiction.
