About Sistering
Sistering is a trans-inclusive 24/7 Drop In supporting women from across Toronto who experience first hand the impact of poverty and marginalization. They may be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. They are a diverse group, aged 16 to 80-plus; women with mental health or substance use issues; women who have experienced or are experiencing trauma and violence; immigrant and refugee women; women with health issues and disabilities; and women without legal status.

Sistering’s goal: to create a safe, non-judgmental space for women who experience social isolation, homeless or precarious housing, trauma and violence, discrimination, substance use or need mental health support. Guided by principles of feminism, anti-racism and anti-oppression, Sistering works in collaboration with others in the community to change the social conditions that endanger women’s welfare.

The agency provides basic necessities including three hot meals a day plus soup and sandwiches overnight; showers and laundry facilities; clothing; and Internet access plus support services such as crisis intervention and trauma-informed counselling; housing support; and onsite access to primary health care with general practitioners, psychiatrists and a nurse.
