OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
Our Sisters, a community of people of faith,
shelters, heals, and empowers courageous adult women surviving prostitution and addiction and trafficking. We will provide independent living and life-skill training in a home of mutual trust and love.
OUR VALUES STATEMENT:
We serve, affirming that all of us are God's children and deserve dignity, respect, mutual trust, and love.
you have called your servants to ventures of which we do not know the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown.
Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us --
through Jesus the Christ our Lord.

OUR SISTERS commits to opening in the summer of 2018 a residence in which a prostituted and addicted and traumatized woman can begin her healing and be able to trust in her fellows and in herself and in her God. The women of OUR SISTERS will become proud and productive members of society, and will leave behind the shame of years of exploitation and rejection.

If a woman is strong enough and brave enough to attempt to escape "the life," she will need strong and brave and resourceful and trustworthy people like you to help her.
Now, there is work to be done. Come join us!

Become a part of the new healing community.
The vision of OUR SISTERS is to build and maintain indefinitely in West Michigan an ethical healing community for adult women who have been abused, addicted, betrayed and trafficked.
We will be making a promise to each woman who passes through our door. We will give her a key.
And we will say,
"We trust you!
It's a gift!"
