Strengthen Our Sisters is one of the largest shelters for victims of domestic violence, rape, incest and homelessness, and their children. Founded in 1987 by Sandra Ramos, a former victim of domestic violence, the shelter offers the most programs for recovering, regrouping, and rising from the traumas of domestic violence, rape, incest, and homelessness. However, in 2012, the shelter saw all of its government funding cut off for refusing to turn away victims and their children or throw them out per governmental guidelines if they were not strong enough to leave or had not yet secured safe, adequate housing. Since then, the staff members have quit, and the residents stepped up to care for the place without funding ever since. Despite the lack of funding, the state still lists this shelter as a place for women to go to without providing the money they need. If this pattern continues without the money they need, the shelter will be in danger of selling its properties by December this year, thus casting out traumatized victims and their children onto the streets. By donating money to the shelter, you can save many victims and their children from the streets by keeping the shelter in place and running. An alternate funding source, GoFundMe, has been set up but with little avail. By saving the shelter, you can save many more lives. GoFundMe:
