Shelter Our Sisters Work Described To Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club


Shelter Our Sisters offers safety, strength and hope to women and children who have suffered abuse. Abuse comes in many forms, Jean Kirch, Director of Development for SOS, told the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club one Tuesday morning at their meeting. In a poll taken of the members, the amount of people who had suffered some sort of abuse or knew of them during their lifetime was amazing.

The demands upon the workers at Shelter Our Sisters have increased to the point where they have had to expand. A new facility is being refurbished in Rochelle Park to help them handle the increasing case load. Their intent is to accept the abused female and offspring, house them for up to 30 days and to assist in finding suitable housing.
Staffed 24 hours per day, seven days per week every year, the Hotline 201 944 9600 is available to women in distress. Whether they need housing, or just advice, Shelter Our Sisters is there to help. They are often referred by relatives, friends, Police, Attorneys, DYFS, Doctors. www.Shelteroursisters.org and many more. It is an ongoing program that attempts to restore the victim to become self-sufficient once again.
