Board of Directors

My Sister’s Place is blessed to have an active, hard-working board that provides strategic direction, oversight, and accountability.  This diverse group of men and women meets many times throughout the year to prayerfully consider our mission and God’s vision for the future. We are grateful to each of our board members for volunteering their time and sharing their expertise to advance the mission of our organization.

Women and children are living in homelessness and lack the resources to meet the basic needs of life.  They have lost their hope and have nowhere to turn.  My Sister’s Place is maximizing its current space to help as many as possible, but still turned away 639 eligible women and children in 2023 due to limited space.  We have to do something different.
