Mission of the Month
Mission of the Month - May 2018  - Strengthen Our Sisters in Hewitt, NJ

The main mission of Strengthen Our Sisters (SOS) is to provide safe supportive shelter and services for battered/homeless women and children.  The structure of the shelter is co-operative and non-hierarchal.  The women play a major role in the decision-making process of the shelter, planning meals, activities, share jobs and more.  They are supported in their goals toward furthering their education, developing skills, a sense of empowerment, and a positive self image.  The women leaving the shelter have joined a circle of support through which a bond has  been formed to work together, to empower each other, gain assertiveness, independence and self-sufficiency.   SOS is dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence, poverty and abuse.
