Our Duties

Warm food Set out items Serve Guests Refill Drinks Clear Plates A Note on Attendance

My Sister's Place relies on volunteers to carry out their mission of providing 3 meals a day to their clients. When volunteers do not show, it makes their job that much harder. If you cannot attend, please remove your RSVP or call the Event host to let them know. A no show deprives people on the wait list a chance to volunteer.

My Sister's Place
My Sister’s Place Women’s Center, which opened on November 20, 2008, is a comprehensive resource center welcoming Baltimore’s homeless and poor women and their children. The mission of the program is to provide a safe, supportive environment where vulnerable women and their families can access housing, referrals, life skills training, and other resources to achieve and sustain self-sufficiency. MSPWC is the combined new home of three existing Catholic Charities programs: My Sister's Place, the Samaritan Center, and Families that Work, and provides, among other things, housing assistance, education and life skills training, benefits advice and enrollment, case management, emergency financial assistance, linkages to other community providers (e.g., for mental health and addiction services), financial literacy services, and personal services (e.g., shower and laundry facilities, mail and telephone access, etc.) MSPWC also provides three meals each day to women and children in need. It is projected that the program will serve between 75 and 125 women and children daily. Amenities include a day room with comfortable seating, a fireplace and mounted television. Three large classrooms are available for workshops. A large kitchen allows volunteers to prepare meals and a dining area holds adjacent cubicles for outside provider assistance. Offices for staff allow privacy and an enclosed play area is provided for children. Flower-filled window boxes hang from windows.
