My Sister’s Keeper
A Transitional Home for Women
OPENING DOORS TO ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES
WHO WE ARE…
We are women…young and old, who have hopes, dreams and aspirations just like you.
But perhaps unlike you, we’ve taken some twists and turns in life that have led to our homelessness.
But just because we are homeless, doesn’t mean we are hopeless. Instead, it may mean that we have fallen on hard times and need a little help to get back up.
We are our Sister’s Keeper!
At our long term Residential Program for homeless women we seek to empower, inspire and encourage women who are experiencing homelessness, domestic violence and sexual exploitation to re-discover their worth and value, change their lives and regain their independence.
To provide a safe and nurturing community where adult women prepare themselves for permanent housing, become emotionally, physically and financially independent, continue the healing process and fulfill their God-given purpose.
Women Who Have Survived Homelessness, Abuse,
Services We Provide Include:
One of the most precious things that a human being can possess is a safe, loving home—a space of their own. At My Sister’s Keeper, we’ve created a comfortable, cozy setting where survivors of homelessness can experience relief and restoration in the warm, inviting setting of home.
Women who are homeless often experience physical and sexual abuse. Almost all will require some form of medical care. Through public-private partnerships, My Sister’s Keeper provides medical, women’s health and some dental services all free of charge to the resident.
Many women will come to our home with some form of substance abuse or addiction. Referrals will be made for those who require an intensive in-patient facility to help them overcome the addiction bondage. My Sister’s Keeper will provide intensive out-patient substance abuse counseling.
Some women literally will come to the home with the clothes on their backs . We work with community partners to provide clothing and accessories.
