Testimonials

“Since my mom left this world, I have reflected on My Sisters’ Place and what this unique organization does in our community 365 days a year. It is extremely difficult to explain to someone all the intricacies and implications of being in a relationship with a loved one that lives with mental illness. From my perspective, My Sisters’ Place is profoundly capable of helping the women that walk through its doors. Until my mom started to go to MSP regularly I was rarely free of worry about my mom’s wellbeing. This trial gradually changed thanks to this special place.”

“It has become a safe place that in a difficult times I am comfortable asking for help without judgement and not made to feel bad about what I'm going through. The staff do what they can to help me. It is a place that gets me through my days that feel impossible.”

“I still remember the first time I went to MSP. I was walking down the street from the methadone clinic and ran into a girl who I had been in jail with. We talked for a minute and she said you know what - I'm going to take you to My Sisters' Place…..When a very nice lady introduced herself and gave me a pamphlet at the door, that's when I realized it wasn't her sister. It was everyone's sister. I fell in love with the place. It wasn't like anywhere I had ever been. It was like one big happy family of Sisters…. There's no judgment. You're treated with respect no matter your past. This isn't the case everywhere a drug addict might go.”
