Refreshments will be available from 1:30 – 2 p.m.

My Sister’s House provides services to women in need of assistance.
In 2012, a woman came to the shelter with her six children seeking a safe haven and to start rebuilding her life after leaving a domestic violence situation. She successfully completed the shelter-based program and transitioned into a home of her own. Now, her family is happy and living a life free from abuse.
This is just one of many stories about courageous women in the tri-county area who have sought shelter at My Sister’s House this year. The Garden Club Organization wishes to celebrate and honor her and all other mothers this Mother’s Day in hopes of spreading inspiration to those who might need help.
