Alcohol and drug abuse is a serious problem in our communities. Many of the victims are homeless and feel helpless. Some have just undergone treatment in a hospital, clinic, or even prison and need to transition from full-time treatment to independent living.

It provides a real world setting that helps these women learn how to live clean and sober lives with people who are going through the same struggle with addiction.
An open house is a way to involve us in the community. It also helps get community support and receive donated services. Hopefully this will get the acceptance of those who shun the idea of known substance abusers in their community.

It will demonstrate our purpose and goals for this house and the resources that we have in place to obtain them. We will provide information that can further educate those concerned with the safety and negative impact that this will not have on their community.
The “Mission Statement” of My Sista’s Keeper is to actively assist women in their transition to becoming responsible, productive, self-sufficient members of society. There is a zero tolerance for anyone who does not abide by the house rules and regulations. Our staff assists individuals in their recovery program.

We provide a family like setting that helps the residents address substance or
