My Sister's Place - A Shelter For Abused Women and Their Children

Although this does not look like a typical FlyPress job (i.e. there is no video in this video:) we were happy to remake this power point presentation for My Sisters Place. The work of gathering the stories and photos was already done for us, we simply cleaned it up, added some transitions and made it in a video format so it could be easily shared on sites like Youtube and Vimeo. We know this will be helpful tool for them, as they raise awareness (and funds) for the cause.

Since 1987, People In Transition “My Sister’s Place” has provided emergency shelter services to abused women and their children in South Simcoe County. We serve the communities of Alliston, Adjala-Tosorontio, Angus/Borden, Bond Head, Beeton, Bradford, Cookstown, Essa, Innisfil, Tottenham, New Tecumseth and West Gwillimbury.

Women living in abusive situations in the rural and farm communities in South Simcoe County face many barriers to leaving the violence in their lives including: isolation from community supports, lack of transportation, and high rents. These women have often experienced physical, emotional, verbal and sexual abuse within their intimate relationships. Their children may have experienced trauma from the domestic violence they have witnessed in the home.

“My Sister’s Place” provides safe refuge to abused women and their children who are fleeing abusive relationships. "My Sister’s Place” serves over 1,000 women (and their children) annually in both our residential and non-residential services. In the shelter, staff offer crisis counseling, emergency transportation support, referrals to other community services, and legal and housing support to abused women and children. Our Outreach/Legal Advocate travels throughout the South Simcoe County area to provide these same confidential services to women and their children who choose to remain in their rural communities.

“My Sister’s Place” relies on provincial government funding and the financial support of our local communities to keep our shelter doors open for the abused women and their children of South Simcoe County. It is through the ongoing support of community partners, organizations and members that we can continue to provide safe shelter, counseling, and outreach services for abused women choosing violence-free lives.
