Our Story & Values

Our Story & Values

Sisters of Solace is a ministry that offers hospitality and a sacred space for women to heal from trauma and addiction. The model for our community is very simple. We’re here to offer compassion for healing and opportunities to lead a financially independent life. We also recognize that simple doesn’t mean easy. Healing takes time, intentionality and hard work. Sisters in our home get as much out of their stay with us at they’re willing to put in. In our home, the sisters can expect support and guidance for setting goals and charting a course for achieving them. Our Advocates help remove barriers and provide access to the support and resources for the journey ahead. While we have a method that is designed to bring healing, life skills and employment, we’re also intentional about our relationships. We are fully present in each sister’s story and care for her deeply on her personal journey to healing. This means that every path will be unique. In addition to healing of body, mind and spirit our home places a strong emphasis on employment. We’re all created with gifts and talents to offer the world so believe that employment goes a long way to restoring dignity. For this reason, we’ve become a mission with a business that offers employment within our home. Our sisters learn to work together, make something beautiful and earn a paycheck.
