Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Homeless & Housing, Homeless Shelters, Housing Support, Single Parent Agencies

Mission: Sisters place provides permanent and transitional housing to homeless families and their children offering a home, intensive case management, and other significant supportive services to help them become self-sufficient.

Programs: Parents in our hud supported permanent housing program must have a disability - physical, mental, drug and/or alcohol addiction, or hiv/aids to qualify. They also have to have custody of dependent children or be at least seven months pregnant to be accepted. Seventeen units are scattered throughout a townhouse community in clairton, pa. With hard work and needed support, our families do make great progress. Diana who has significant mental health diagnoses was able to obtain her first job and just celebrated her one year anniversary of employment - a great milestone for her. She is working to secure a better position, so she can move into independent housing with her three children ages 12, 9 and almost 2.

parents in our transitional housing program are younger mothers between the ages of 18 and 26 who have documented homelessness, but recently we are seeing older parents with more significant barriers to housing. These families can remain in transitional housing for 18 months but frequently are able to access permanent housing within one year.

Me and my children have been living in this housing program for almost 3 years after getting out of 20 years of domestic violence. We left with nothing but the clothes on our back and went to a shelter. While there I didn't know what was going to happen. I didn't know how I was going to make it with 5 kids. Then after 3 months Sisters Place called. WHAT A BLESSING! They eliminated all my worries about being homeless and having to figure out where I was going to get furniture and the basic things like dishes, towels etc. They do everything to help you on a road to self sufficiency that they possibly can. Thankyou so so much for your help and donations. If it wasn't for this place I might have given up hope at a second chance.

I first engaged with Sister's Place by donating to one of their yearly fund raisers in 2012.

In 2014, I volunteered on their yearly breakfast fundraiser. these events are well planned and great successes.

Not only does Sister's Place help homeless families in their greatest time of need, they work with them until they can get back on their own feet; keeping their dignity intact.

If you want more bang for your donated buck, I highly recommend investing in Sister's Place and their mission.

As a former staff member and current donor for Sisters Place, I am proud to lend my support as the Agency continues to serve 32 families (single mothers with children) who have experienced homelessness. They provide more than just a house - a place to sleep, after school activities for the children, assistance securing and retaining a job, educational guidance, case management and so much more. They do so much with a small staff and I am glad to play a small role in supporting their mission.

Sisters Place is dedicated to helping the homeless children in our area to get a new start on life. The impact of homlessness on children is often invisible and providing a stable environment allows these kids a chance to reach their potentials. Helping our community -- one family at a time -- makes a difference in all our lives. Bless this work and those who serve those often forgotten homeless kids!
