My Sisters’ Place (MSP) is a safe, welcoming and inclusive centre that supports women through drop-in and wrap-around services. Many experience multiple vulnerabilities including gender based violence, trauma, chronic mental and physical health challenges, homelessness or housing instability, substance use, and extreme poverty.
Developed with input from women of lived experience, My Sisters’ Place offers a comprehensive multi-disciplinary support system with the capacity to deliver practical needs, specialized services and education/skills development under one roof. At the core of My Sisters’ Place is a commitment to promoting a welcoming and non-judgmental culture, a reprieve from the stigma women so often feel in other community settings.
Within our mother agency CMHA Middlesex, we connect women with mental health services, Case Management, Clinical Services, and Community Programs. We also work closely with community partners to connect women with other supports in the community.
