Sonna Gilmour

Five words to describe her

A wife and mom who loves her family, a practical girl who likes structure, serious yet fun, can make a friend anywhere, a little codependent but working on it.

What she does at Without Permission

At WP, Sonna is the Just His House Coordinator. She runs the day to day activity at JHH with the survivors, volunteers and other staff. At JHH we are all working together to bring restoration to young women who have been traumatized by trafficking, and for many, other life circumstances.


She and her husband Todd have 6 children between the two of them, 3 boys and 3 girls. Their kids are grown and out of the house now, but as a family they still like to get together over food, break out a board game, laugh a lot and hike together.

Previously in life…

Sonna’s college years include a 26 year span, 4 different colleges and an enlistment in the Army. Parenting four children was her primary job for most of those years and she loved being in their classrooms and attending field trips and sporting events with them. When they had grown she decided to go back and finish her degree, graduating from Liberty University in 2012. She heard God’s call to work with women in crisis and began volunteering for the Chemo Crew and Bethany Christian Services here in Modesto, which eventually led to her position at Without Permission. She is loving this journey God is leading her on.
