My Sister’s House is a safe place for women and children fleeing domestic, sexual violence and/or human trafficking. Counselors and advocates work directly with individuals, providing hospital and court advocacy, peer support and case management services.
The women we serve come to us physically and emotionally battered, and traumatized along with their children. They may be cut off from family and friends, and without a sense of what to do or where to go next, but we help them take the steps they need to assess their situation and address their problems.
We offer bedrooms that keep mothers and children together, a kitchen where they can cook their own meals with food from our pantry, and common areas to relax or attend counseling meetings. This is where they can take the steps they need to, so they can live without fearing for their safety.
My Sister’s House has two victims’ advocates who also serve as case managers. These professionals provide transportation to court hearings or the hospital, and show them that they’re not alone.
Services are also available for men who may be victims of domestic violence or sexual violence.
