Founded by a group of volunteers in 1980, My Sisters House Inc., provides safe shelter to victims of domestic violence and their children throughout the tri-county area. Women who are in immediate danger from verbal, emotional, physical or sexual abuse are eligible to stay in our emergency shelter at no charge.
While staying at My Sister’s House, both the women and children participate in group and individual counseling sessions, parenting and living skills classes. They also are given referrals for housing, employment, and for additional counseling that may be necessary once they leave the shelter. The women served by My Sister’s House are provided with a safe environment where they can not only make decisions but take action to make those decisions a reality.
Due to grant regulations, we are unable to accept men into our shelter. If you are a male victim, please call our crisis line for more information and a list of referrals. Women are allowed to stay at the shelter with their children (girls and boys) who are 17 years of age or younger.
If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911. If you are interested in becoming a guest at our shelter, please call us at 843-744-3242 or 1-800-273-HOPE (4673).
