The 2019 Charitable Beneficiary is My Sister's House
My Sister's House
My Sister's House is the only emergency domestic violence shelter located in the Charleston area serving women who are victims of domestic violence and their children. We have been serving the Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester communities for almost 40 years. Women and their children who come to us for shelter and help, typically arrive with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. At no cost to the women and children, we provide them with food, shelter, clothes and the basic necessities of life.
Did you know that South Carolina is, and has been, in the top 10 in the nation for most women killed in domestic violence situations? We are currently #6.
My Sister's House also provides a 24 hour/7 days a week crisis line which is always answered by a human voice, either a staff member or trained volunteer. We provide our clients with professional adult and child therapists. Also we have court advocates that will accompany the women to court and explain their rights and help them fill out legal paperwork. We also offer many resources and services to help EMPOWER these women and provide safety until they are on their feet again. This year we are providing transitional housing in which we will provide rental assistance for 3 months in addition to continuing to provide support and resources.
Please support us by getting involved as a volunteer, donating monetary gifts or in-kind, checking to see if your company has a matching gift program.
