Double (or even triple) your donation to My Sister's Place

At My Sister’s Place, Washington, DC’s oldest domestic violence shelter, we save and rebuild lives – one family at a time. We've been doing it for nearly 35 years, and the families we serve need your help now, more than ever.

And your boss might agree with us.

Our friends in the business community understand the importance of helping our most vulnerable neighbors.  Check to see if your company will match your donation or offers a volunteer grant program.

Between 2008 and 2012, our 24-hour hotline experienced a 65.4% increase in calls, and in 2012, a study found that 74% of victims remained with an abuser longer because of financial issues. Without your support, too many mothers face the choice of remaining in a violent home or sleeping on the streets of DC.

We think that’s a choice no mother should ever have to face.

Thank you for helping us make sure that they have a third option – sanctuary and a continuum of care that helps them move towards long-term safety and self-sufficiency.

And if you see your employer listed, join us in thanking them for making our community a better place for all.
