My Sister’s Place
My Sister’s Place is a community housing program that supports women with or without children who have experienced domestic violence and or abuse.
This program consists of three different “levels” of supports and housing.
Amber House is our 18 bed women’s transition house that is for women and children directly leaving an abusive or violent situation. Typical length of stay at Amber House is 30 days.
The My Sister’s Place Second Stage Program is secure independent housing for women, with or without children, who have experienced intimate partner violence/abuse and whose income levels are low to moderate. We will prioritize those who are fleeing current violence from an intimate partner and who wish to stay in the community. Second Stage program accommodation consists of studio, two and three bedroom apartments. Women living in Second Stage receive programming and supports that are intended to help them move forward in their lives in a healing, healthy and meaningful direction. Typical length of stay in our Second Stage program is anywhere from 6-18 months, potentially up to 2 years.
My Sister’s Place Long Term Housing Program consists of 21 town homes that are 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms and intended to provide long term women led tenancy for women with or without children, also with low to moderate income, who are looking for a sense of safety, community and longer term stability. There is some programming and support included with long term housing. There is no limit to the length of stay in this housing.
Together, all of these programs are intended to provide a sense of connection, safety and community for women who are healing from the trauma of violence and abuse, and wishing to make change in their lives and the lives of their children.
