SISTER House, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) organization, assists women returning to the Madison community after spending time in jail, prison, or drug/alcohol treatment. In 2010, we sponsored the opening of Wisconsin’s first Oxford House for women – Madison Place Oxford House. Then, in 2012 we opened our second house – Northside Oxford House. Oxford Houses are homes where people committed to their recovery from alcohol or drug addiction can live safely and affordably. Each house is democratically run and financially self-supported by the people who live there. It’s a model that works!
We also have a rental assistance program, helping women each month with their rent either at their apartment or at the Oxford House. The funds for this program come from what we call our 20/20 club. This is a group of people who have committed to donating $20 each month for 20 months. We have many people who have faithfully donated to this for many years.
For more information please contact email@example.com;Janice Newell, treasurer, at (608) 279-2793 or Debi Shepherd-Wundrowat (608) 235-7994. We really appreciate your support of SISTER House!
