Greetings from the Executive Director

Dear Lindsey,

If a new year feels like a clean slate, Sojourner House will be filling this welcome to 2022 with good news, grace, and gratitude. We are grateful to the friends and funders who have quite literally made our continued work possible during this pandemic and the past year — our 30th anniversary of service.


Thankful to do our important work safely on behalf of our families, our staff continues to carry out our mission. Our good news in the months ahead will include an update on the Sojourner House MOMS Play Yard — an exciting outdoor project on track for completion in late spring. Before that, we will invite you to gather for tea wherever you are through an innovative event during the month of April.


Watch our website and email box for more soon — including our 2020-2021 Annual Report, full of coverage of accomplishments and, yes, our continued thanks. In the meantime, read on for our updates.

Welcoming Our New Director of Advancement

Meet Yvonne Hudson

Yvonne Hudson comes to Sojourner House with a background of managing development and communications at diverse nonprofits, including Quantum Theatre. Her career roles have taken her to New York and Washington, D.C., including an early stint working at a drug and alcohol counseling agency. That experience has stayed with her. Now, she’s excited to again focus on the importance of recovery support here.

In her own words: “I'm really excited about being at Sojourner House to make a difference, create new relationships, and build on what the organization does in the community.”

The Victorian Tea Travels to You in 2022!

The Victorian Tea event has looked a little different during the last two years while we’ve hosted this traditional event in non-traditional ways. This year, new and exciting options will continue to support this important Sojourner House event.

In April, the Victorian Tea is coming to your doorstep! And when you register to participate, you will be sent a “Victorian Tea in a Box” so you can celebrate in style. During our designated “Tea Month” this spring, you’ll sip your tea with your friends and family while wearing your fascinator…and perhaps your favorite comfy clothes. Watch your inbox and our social channels for details on how to order a Tea Kit!
