Sisters in Shelter
at a Glance
Sisters in Shelter provides a wide array of services, notably case management and safe housing, to survivors of Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence. We are also dedicated to advocacy and educating our community about the prevalence and nuance of these egregious social issues.
Our non-profit organization was founded in 2005 by the Sisters of St. Francis, who began assisting survivors and reaching out to the Tiffin community. Sisters in Shelter remains committed to meeting the abundant need for survivor support in our community because, unfortunately, trafficking happens in our own backyard.
Since October 2019, we have expanded our services to assist not only Human Trafficking survivors but also survivors of Domestic Violence. Both of these atrocities have infiltrated communities across the world, and Seneca County is no exception. It is our passion to build independence and strength for these individuals.
Our mission is to support survivors and illuminate the atrocities of human trafficking and domestic violence through community education and advocacy.
