What our donors say….

“For too long, the issue of violence in the home has gone unknown and unnoticed and has caused considerable psychiatric pain to the women who are affected. My Sister's Place sensitizes citizens to this problem, and I am happy to lend my support.”

- Rob

“As a young girl I saw my aunts flee domestic violence and come to my house. The issue is close to my heart and I will always support My Sister's Place.”

- Cherry

“I give because I think that everyone deserves a safe place to call home.”

- Martha

“I give because I was a child affected by domestic violence.”

- Daryl

“I couldn't help my friend, but I can help others. That's why I support My Sister's Place.”

- Thais

“Although I was hit by the financial crisis, like so many of us, I know MSP's clients still have less than I do. And when I can't afford to donate my money, I will donate my time.”

- Beth

“I give because I'm the one that got away. My Sister's Place saved my life.”

-Aisha

“All I wanted was to provide a safe environment for my children. My Sister's Place helped us with shelter during the cold days of January.”

- Tina

“I had a happy marriage; then it became abusive. I am now on my own- safe and happy for 7 years. I want to help others do this.”

– Stephanie

“One mean parent and one powerless one can do awful things to a child. Working with the counselors here and sharing with the other women has helped me to take my own power back.”

– Dominique
