Legal woes continue for Sojourner House

June 12, 2014

WOONSOCKET – The legal dispute between the Sojourner House program assisting the victims of domestic violence and a former staff member alleging the organization misused federal grant funding was continuing this week despite Superior Court ruling dismissing the initial complaint in the case.

A Providence news outlet reported on Thursday the non-profit organization, founded in 1975 and 1976 to help battered women find shelter from their abusers, was again under scrutiny as a result of the allegations tendered by the former employee, Lisa Fisher, back in October of 2013. Fisher alleged her refusal to collect bids on a sprinkler job that had already been completed and her questioning of the matter led to her dismissal as a “whistleblower” in December of 2011.
