"People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used."
Sisters in Shelter at a Glance
Sisters in Shelter provides Case Management services to survivors of Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence, as well as educating the community on the prevalence of these social issues.
Our non-profit organization originated in 2005 by the Sisters of St. Francis, where they began assisting survivors and providing community education. Once this epidemic of Human Trafficking was identified, and how close to home it really is, Sisters in Shelter has been dedicated to providing community education and much needed support to survivors in our community.
Beginning in October 2019, we have expanded our services to assist not only Human Trafficking survivors but also survivors of Domestic Violence as both of these issues are occuring right in our own communities and it is our passion to help build independence and strength for these individuals.
Our mission is to support survivors and bring to light the extensive issue of Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence, and the need to address it in our own community.
