Shattered Lives is excited and honored to welcome Elmire Raven, Executive Director of My Sister’s House to the radio broadcast scheduled Saturday, March 1 at 5pm. My Sister’s House is a nonprofit organization that provides services, programs and resources to empower victims of domestic violence and their children to be free from abuse.

My Sister's House, Shattered Lives, Elmire Ravin, Donna R. GoreLocated in North Charleston, South Carolina, the organization operates an emergency temporary shelter at an undisclosed location for up to 36 women and children who flee abusive situations in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties in South Carolina. It also maintains a 24-hour crisis hotline and helps victimized women and children with needed food, clothing, transportation, medication among many other community services.

Learn more about the Survivor’s Advisory Board. According to Ms. Raven: “Survivors are uniquely qualified to provide input to My Sister’s House on policies and practices that will benefit current victim in the shelter.”

This amazing organization is like many other small not-for-profits providing critical social services, advocacy and counseling.  Ms. Ravin spins many plates and their Safety Plan is one of the best I’ve ever seen.

Intimate partner violence is a crime and we, at Shattered Lives, use a keen lens to peer into the world of the abused and the abuser to help us all understand how we can better serve those impacted.

Share the knowledge!
