Special Announcement from Sojourner Home


Sojourner Home is pleased to welcomed Jean Carroll as Interim Executive Director on June 12th. Jean previously spent 33 years as president & CEO at the YWCA of Rochester & Monroe County. Her work has focused on leading social change while providing vital services to women and families who are in crisis. Jean led the YWCA's campaign to eliminate racism in Rochester, and was involved in many other anti-racism efforts.
