Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Sisters Place offers many programs and services to our families. Parents and kids at Sisters Place are provided with all of the basic tools and supportive services that they need to become self-sufficient, and break the cycle of poverty. Sisters Place provides case management, goal planning, counseling, education and job training for mothers and fathers in residence. In addition, we provide parenting education, family activities and in-home supportive services to help build safer and healthier home environments. Support groups and educational seminars occur at our Program Center on a regular basis. Parental participation in the children’s programs is highly encouraged as a tool to strengthen family relationships.
Other services include a monthly food distribution coordinated through the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, subsidized rent, assistance with transportation, and much more. The goal is to empower the parents to make conscious choices that can positively impact the quality of their lives, of their children, and of the community.
