We will make arrangements for a meeting with Nita Belles while she is visiting us in May.



Can you find a few people between now and the first of May who know about human trafficking and who can help OUR SISTERS assist a courageous woman to leave "the life" of abuse and pain and rejection?

OUR SISTERS has a want-list of essentials to acquire BEFORE we can begin to offer services. See the ESSENTIALS PAGE.

One of the essentials is REAL ESTATE.
SOMEWHERE in the Grand Rapids area there is certainly a house that will be suitable for our use. OUR SISTERS will require a place with three or four bedrooms and two baths, a roomy kitchen, and a yard big enough for a garden. It will be close to a bus line. It will be visible from the street, but not prominent.

Once we have acquired the house, we will be looking for volunteers to help remodel it and furnish it and make it homey.
Do you know of such a house? Is it for sale?
Is it in a neighborhood that is neither too wealthy
nor too run-down, but just right?

        Tell us about it!
