Joy will be missed by her Sojourners Family

By · Wednesday, August 17th, 2016 · No Comments »

The Sojourners family was shocked yesterday by the unexpected death of our dear friend and colleague, Joy Dickerson. Joy was employed by Sojourners for 10 years but served the organization before that as a board member and board chair. She embraced every new opportunity thrown her way with enthusiasm and commitment and gave her best every day to the young people she served. Her loss leaves a gaping hole in our organization and in our hearts. We send our deepest condolences to her father, sisters, and all her family and friends. SHE WILL BE MISSED.

Help Us Make Homeless Youth Feel at Home

By · Thursday, July 14th, 2016 · No Comments »

HomeWOTY_zps31c32a96Here is the good news. Today Sojourners is providing safe housing for more homeless youth than ever before in our 17 years. Now the bad news. We do not have grant funds to furnish their apartments, which puts a big strain on our organization. We need your help to make homes for these young men and women.

We have a great need for the following items, which can be new or gently used. Household supplies (flatware, dishes, glassware, pots and pans). Furniture (beds, mattresses, chest of drawers, sofas, tables and chairs). Appliances (microwaves, toasters, toaster ovens, lamps.) Soft goods (bed linens, kitchen linens, pillows, rugs). And, of course cleaning supplies and toiletry items. You can drop off donations at Sojourners, 605 West Main Street, McArthur, OH. We may even be able to pick up big items. For more info contact Shelly Horvath at 740.591.6649 or
