About Us

SisterHouse Mission Statement: 

SisterHouse educates and empowers women to lead sober and fulfilling lives by providing a safe and structured spiritual living community.

SisterHouse Vision Statement:

SisterHouse is a safe haven that encourages and allows each person to direct her God-given gifts towards realizing the sober and complete woman that God has created her to be.

Each successful and resilient woman is reaching towards her full potential by growing in self-awareness, self-respect and forgiveness, learning to embrace self and others, while building healthy relationships. She learns not only how to maintain sobriety, internalizing the 12 steps and building a support system, but also how to thrive in life. Each SisterHouse woman secures quality employment and stable housing. She makes plans for her future and acquires the skills, knowledge, and abilities to realize her dreams.

SisterHouse is a sponsored ministry of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Atlantic-Midwest province.
