All February, Tri-Valley Haven has been celebrating Black History Month. Staff members are sharing daily emails to other staff details about history made on each day. Tri-Valley Haven hosted a luncheon among staff that was catered by a local restaurant, Oyo, which is owned by a Guyanese man. During the luncheon, staff gathered to discuss, African-American influencers, inclusion, and how the agency can uplift the voices of black survivors.
Our agency is committed to maintaining cultural competency and developing the best methods to help survivors of various backgrounds. Did you know that Tri-Valley Haven’s Homeless Shelter is named Sojourner Truth House in honor of this incredible suffragette and abolitionist?
