For over 40 years, My Sister’s Place has supported survivors of domestic violence by providing both emergency shelter and transitional housing as well as high-quality, trauma-informed services that address individualized needs. In the past year, 181 survivors and 329 children were served by My Sister’s Place. Our work ensures that survivors of domestic violence and their families have a safe place to heal and rebuild their lives.
Today is YOUR chance to join us. We need to raise $100,000 by September 1 in order to meet the needs of clients. With your help, we can provide shelter, safety, and support to hundreds of survivors and children. Will you invest in our mission this year?
Throughout the month of May, you read stories about the moms at MSP who inspire us with their courage and love, who have taught us to persevere: Mothers like Sharon, who was able to find justice against her abuser, reconnect with her daughter, and is now a strong advocate for survivors of domestic violence; or Emily, who, through hard-work and determination, was able to get her EMT recertification, find a new job, and maintain independence for her family. And then there’s Kristina, who gave birth to a beautiful baby boy while at MSP and is now getting ready to make a fresh start in her new apartment.
At My Sister’s Place we believe in the power of saying Yes! to mothers like Sharon, Emily, and Kristina. To us, saying yes to a survivor means accepting them as they are in their moment of greatest need. Saying yes means that we believe in their inherent worth and their right to a better life. Saying yes means we understand that years of pain don’t heal overnight and that we’ll be with them through every step of the journey. Will you join us?
We invite you to say Yes! with us as we support survivors of domestic violence as they find safety, healing, and rebuild their lives.
When you donate $50, you’re providing new bedding for a family that just arrived at our emergency shelter.
When you donate $250, you’re providing healthy, home-cooked meals for a family in our shelter for a month.
When you give $1000, you’re providing a fully furnished apartment for a family who is ready to move into their new home.
Together, we can support and empower survivors of domestic violence and their families. Thank you for being an essential part of our work.
