those in need
My Sister's Place was founded on the idea of helping women in need .We originally started with a half-way house but soon discovered that if we were able to provide the women with a job, they could afford to live anywhere they wanted. Most of them had children they wanted and needed to return to. So we changed our focus to helping single and formerly incarcerated women with jobs. We provide women with the encouragement to apply for jobs that will increase the job satisfaction while making a higher wage. Many of the women we currently work with are working and have transitioned back into the community safely and with legal employment.

BABY BEGINNINGS PROGRAM
A voucher program for previously and recently incarcerated women who had their babies while they were incarcerated. We also help women who are currently pregnant as well as single moms. This program provides clothing and other non-food items to help with a changing familys needs and allows us to work with the women for at least 5 years. The goal of this program is to help problem solve issues while keeping the women stable, out of prison and keeping the family unit intact.
We are running the program out of the Westlake Church of God on Rockville Rd .in Indianapolis which has blessed us with the use of their facilities 2 Saturdays per month. We are working to get this program started in many other churches and community centers so we can adequately serve many communities.

Stitching lives together-- taking the women from a desperate situation to one of self actualization is a trying time-- yet we persevere to help the women to recreate themselves; to strive harder and model those good behaviors for their children-- to change those cycles of abuse, addiction, homelessness and incarceration. We have faith in them even when they don't have it for themselves. Woven bits of pieces- a lot like the lives we are helping. Women have many bits to their lives; they are colorful & they need a place where they feel secure and accepted. Many lives fragmented by an unjust world; lives just crying out for help. We help those who have exhausted all options and just need someone to listen to their story and encourage them to be the best they can be.
