Sisters Place faithfully provides opportunities for individuals to overcome poverty and homelessness through empowerment, housing, wellness, and personal and professional advancement services.
Sisters Place programming has been two-generation (2Gen) since 1996 and we can document the efficacy of helping every age group in a family that has experienced homelessness.
Our programming encompasses service pillars that are made available to all clients (residential and non-residential):
- Empowerment: supporting clients with meeting basic needs
- Housing: supportive housing to provide stabilization, safety and support
- Wellness: mental and physical health as well as substance use support and referrals
- Advancement: resources for GED prep, college, trade school, apprenticeships, workforce development and more
Sisters Place strives to be a collaborative community asset that eliminates barriers to success for those experiencing poverty and homelessness.
We believe that in order to effectively disrupt the cycles of poverty and homelessness – self-care, financial literacy, and parenting skills need to be enhanced, past traumas need to be recognized, mental health and addiction need to be managed, and home life needs to be stabilized.
