THE STORY:

 My Sister's Place (MSP) engages the community to prevent domestic violence and empowers survivors to build healthy lives free from violence and abuse.    


1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience domestic violence with severe physical abuse, and almost 50% of women and men experience emotional abuse, which research shows has devastating long-term health impacts. For over 40 years, MSP has been an innovator in changing lives by providing DC's first hotline and first domestic violence shelter, and now by taking a public health approach to the epidemic of domestic violence.    


MSP is unique in offering a full continuum of care from immediate crisis on our hotline through transitional-to-permanent housing.  Our experienced team of professional social workers provides clinical counseling, case management, and comprehensive services to empower survivors to recover and thrive.  MSP also provides training, case consultation, and advocacy to engage communities to prevent violence and abuse. Our goal is to end domestic violence, and empower everyone to build healthy lives and relationships.
