For more than 35 years, My Sisters’ Place (MSP) has worked to end violence in intimate relationships and combat the effects of domestic violence and human trafficking throughout Westchester County, New York and the surrounding region. MSP has evolved from a grassroots task force and drop-in center into a cutting edge leader and resource in the field of domestic violence advocacy, shelter and legal services and education and prevention. Based on the tenet of taking a holistic approach and addressing the root causes of family violence, MSP is continually expanding in order to effectively respond to the increasing and changing needs of individuals in crisis.
My Sisters’ Place strives to engage each member of society in our work so that all relationships can embrace the principles of respect, equality, and peacefulness. We advance this mission with direct services, advocacy and community education.
MSP provides comprehensive shelter, advocacy, legal services, and supportive services for victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, stalking, and human trafficking and currently offers services and programs that address the needs of domestic violence victims at various stages of separating from their abusers and their subsequent pursuit of productive, independent lives. Services and programs include: two emergency shelters; a 24-hour hotline for assistance and referrals; an extensive support group network in both English and Spanish; a full service Legal Center providing advice and representation; and a Self Sufficiency program that helps transition victims back to the workforce. MSP’s comprehensive children’s services include both residential and non-residential support groups and a therapeutic art program for children who have experienced domestic violence. Outreach efforts reach high school students to prevent dating violence and healthcare workers to identify signs of domestic violence.
