The Transitional Housing Program (THP) at My Sisters’ Place is designed to assist survivors of domestic violence in gaining economic stability and achieving their personal goals towards living safe and independent lives. We strive to meet this mission by providing direct rental assistance and housing-related services, as well as by providing practical and emotional support, either in-house at MSP or through referrals to our partner agencies within the community.

The THP is a pathway towards permanent housing and economic stability.  We respect and honor an individual’s right to choice, and we are available as allies in the journey towards safety and stability.  Staff provide a variety of resources and support depending on each individual’s unique circumstances and goals. The THP serves as a supportive stepping stone in the lives of participants as they continue to rebuild their lives and transition into the community.

The THP is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and clients must meet specific requirements to be eligible for assistance.

What We Offer: 

  • Rental assistance for up to nine (9) apartment units.
  • Housing assistance, supportive counseling, and advocacy.
  • Opportunities to explore, discover and create options for employment and educational success, including linkages to job training and readiness programs, and to MSP’s LIFE Self-Sufficiency Program.

Did You Know?

  • Lack of affordable, permanent housing is a major barrier for victims of domestic violence who are trying to break free and stay free from abuse.
  • Participants in the THP have often been forced to leave stable jobs and housing in order to flee their abusive partners.  The THP fills a gap in need while participants work their way back towards stability for themselves and their children.
  • Since our program began in 2008, XX participants have moved from transitional to permanent housing, and XX participants have increased their income over a two-year period.
