My Sister’s Place (MSP) seeks to end domestic violence and empower survivors to live healthy, independent lives free from violence.
For over 40 years, MSP has been an innovator in changing lives by providing DC’s first hotline and first domestic violence shelter, and now by taking a public health approach to the epidemic of domestic violence. As DC’s oldest domestic violence shelter, they have served as a cornerstone of the District’s response to this pressing public health issue since 1979, and the impact
on DC’s community remains as strong as ever.
MSP is unique in offering a full continuum of care from immediate crisis on the hotline through transitional-to-permanent housing. The experienced team of professional social workers provides clinical counseling, case management, and comprehensive services to empower survivors to recover and thrive. MSP also provides training, case consultation, and advocacy to engage communities to prevent violence and abuse. The goal is to end domestic violence, and empower everyone to build healthy lives and relationships.
