The mission and vision remain!
My Sister's House remains committed to providing comprehensive support, services, and education within and beyond the walls of our shelter. As we continue to adjust to this new normal, we are finding creative ways to address the unique needs and challenges of our clients and community during this time. MSH will continue to follow the guidance of the SC Department of Health and Environmental Controls (DHEC) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and follow the directives of state and local authorities to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
