When Sojourner Family Peace Center opens its brand new, 72,000-square-foot facility later this year, it will not only transform Milwaukee's approach to healing survivors of domestic abuse, but it will also push to halt the cycle of violence that travels between generations. The Sojourner Family Peace Center, a two-story safe haven located at 619 W. Walnut St. in Milwaukee, will dramatically shift the way victims of violence reach support services as the center aggregates services under one roof. Those services encompass everything from criminal justice system support to legal care, health care, employability and education – services that historically have operated in silos and created a very fragmented system for abuse victims to navigate. The new center, a collaborative project of anchor partners Sojourner, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, and the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office, follows an internationally recognized model of wrapping services around families in a one-stop shop locale.
