Consulting Radiologists, Ltd (CRL) gives to many non-profits and foundations throughout the year but when it comes to holiday giving our radiologists and staff have rallied around the Sojourner Project for many years.
Sojourner first came to our attention when a former employee told us that she found refuge there as a child and how important the organization was to victims of domestic abuse. That was the beginning of CRL’s participation in the annual toy drive for the Sojourner Holiday Boutique and in recent years we have invited others in our community to join with us in this support. Amy Flicker, Sonographer at CRL Women’s Imaging tells us that for her, “the best thing about the Sojourner Project is that they do a good job at making sure that the children, who are the innocent victims still get to celebrate the holidays and are not forgotten.”
Sojourner has been providing life-changing and life-saving services to victims of domestic violence and the communities in which they live for 40 years. At the heart of Sojourner’s work is the belief that everyone deserves to be safe from violence and live free from fear. We asked CRL’s President, Dr. Christopher Tillotson what supporting this project has meant for him over the years, “I’m very grateful for the opportunity at CRL to sponsor and support such a project and the role they play in providing shelter and safety for victims of domestic violence, as well as the nurturing environment and support as they transition.”
Sojourner Project’s mission of advocating for victim safety, supporting the transition from victim to survivor, and educating for the prevention and elimination of domestic violence is multi-faceted. Each year Sojourner shelters over 400 women and children, advocates for almost 1,000 community clients, responds to the needs of approximately 3,000 callers on their 24/7 Crisis/Help Line and provides nearly 250 presentations to youth in schools and the community at large.
Consulting Radiologists, Ltd. would like to thank Sojourner Project for their continued work in our community and for allowing us to partner with them year after year to support these victims, their families and our community.
