I started volunteering at My Sisters’ Place in 2015 with the goal of establishing an onsite repository space for the documents that tell the story of this organization. With two other volunteer helpers, Carly Diab and Kelly Thoreson, we got to work creating an inventory of documents that had previously been scattered throughout the office and even in the personal basements of dedicated staff. I used this inventory to then create an archival description of all these documents.

The collection consists of records created and accumulated from the activities of My Sisters’ Place, including administrative and financial documents, collected media coverage, event flyers, scrapbooks, floorplans, and research with community partners or through professional development activities, testimony, and artwork.

Some files have restrictions on access because of the personal information they include. Researchers are required to submit a written request for access to the collection. If you would like to view any of the records from the My Sisters’ Place Archives, please contact us at and provide as much detailed information as possible regarding the types of materials you are interested in and the purpose of the research you are conducting.
