“There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.”– Desmund Tutu
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.
