The Center for Family Violence Prevention is a non-profit organization that helps victims of domestic violence. Providing Shelter, Counseling, clothes and other services, the organization operates 365 days a year. With a high demand and not a lot of funding, The Center for Family Violence Prevention relies on services such as “My Sisters Closet”
“We get gently used clothing that are donated to use by the community and it helps support the program” said Shirrell Thomas, My Sisters Closet General Manager.
The Store provides clothing for victims but also helps raise money through the funds generated at the thrift shop.
Before Now, The group has put on a rummage sale of old furniture and home décor to also help raise money twice a year.
“Right now when we need it the most, the funds we were getting from the state are even less” said Thomas.
But now the demand has become so high, the organization decided to go full time and open up “My Sisters Attic”, a furniture and home décor thrift and consignment shop.
Just like “My Sisters Closet” all of the money generated from sales, will be going back into The Center for Family Violence Prevention’s programs and services.
The stores general manager said they hope to have the store up and running by February 15th with an opening ceremony on the 13th.
