Group Name: Sistering: A Woman’s Place
Description: Sistering is a women’s organization that offers practical and emotional support through programs which enable them to take greater control over their lives. Guided by the principles of Anti-Racism/Anti-Oppression, Sistering works to change social conditions which endanger women’s welfare. Sistering was founded early in 1980, when a small group of social service agency representatives, women living in hostels and community residents came together to discuss the needs of homeless and transient women in downtown Toronto. Particularly women’s need for a safe and welcoming women’s only space during the day, and a space where women could access food, support and information.
Basic services to homeless, transient or socially isolated women with food, clothing, personal care and information. Provides social and recreational day programs, referrals, informal counselling, outreach and transportation to daily programs for special-needs women.
