Help us change lives, one woman at a time

You want to make a tangible difference in the lives of Toronto’s marginalized women—poor, homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, socially isolated, and often dealing with mental health issues—because you believe that regardless of her circumstances, every woman deserves a hot meal, a shower, a change of clothes and a respectful welcome. You want to join the team at Sistering.
