Spotlight on CSB’s Sojourn House
- Did you know that the CSB runs a residential facility in Fairfax County for teenage girls who have experienced trauma and/or are having mental health difficulties? Sojourn House serves from 15 to 20 girls each year and is the only one of its kind here in Fairfax County. It has a school on site, operated by Fairfax County Public Schools, and works with each girl to help her transition successfully back into the community. Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova visited Sojourn House in July and wrote about it in her recent community newsletter.
