Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Sistercare's goals are to provide safe, sanitary and efficient shelter at three confidential locations for battered women and their children; to offer essential supportive services designed to develop self sufficiency, improve decision making, to reduce future risk of family violence; and to prevent domestic violence through training, education, and awareness.

Community education and awareness to break the cycle of family violence.

Offers additional services needed to victims of family violence and a broader outreach program.

A well-established stable program, with a proven record of successfully serving battered women is an essential part of Sistercare's program. Sistercare has sheltered more than 18,000 domestic violence survivors since October 1981. Sistercare has serviced more than 120,000 survivors of domestic violence in the past 34 years.
