My Sister’s House was established as a non-profit organization in 2001. Its primary objective is to provide aid to Asian and Pacific Islander women and children, as well as women and children from underserved sectors in Sacramento and neighboring areas in California.
They provide shelter, job training, and community services to survivors of domestic abuse, human trafficking, and sexual assault. It has a 24-hour support line for crisis intervention and operates two transitional houses for its A Safe Haven Shelter Program, where clients of all ethnicities fleeing violence can find secure, culturally appropriate, and comfortable accommodations.
Various support groups are involved in the Women to Work program, a free service offered to clients facing challenges with job placement and financial security. The agency maintains My Sister’s Café, a volunteer-based establishment.
My Sister’s House welcomes a wide variety of donations to help their causes, including cash. In addition to that, they encourage donations of clothes, houseware, hygiene products, office supplies, gift cards, and vehicles. My Sister’s Café has a separate list of supplies needed, which include food and non-food items.
They’re not the only organization in the country to accept clothing donations to fund their causes. Another one is The Salvation Army, who have hundreds of donations bins and thrift stores around the country where you can donate used clothes and other items.
Donors can add My Sister’s House as a beneficiary to Amazon Smile. One way to do this is by installing the Smilematic extension for the Google Chrome browser. They can also buy urgently needed items

The headquarters of My Sister’s House are located on Freeport Blvd. in Sacramento, CA. This organization serves the Central Valley region.
