SISTER 2 SISTER
First Nonprofit Foundation awarded $50,000 to Sister to Sister, a nonprofit that provides a comprehensive support network for more than 800 Jewish single mothers in communities across the United States and Canada, to create a new website and online resource center. The new site will allow thousands of women across the U.S. to benefit from Sister to Sister’s services and help members and volunteers share strength, resources and support in an innovative system that retains the “memory” of each connection and service.
Sister to Sister’s mission is to provide a comprehensive resource and support network for Jewish divorced women. Sister to Sister places a particular focus on the needs of two populations of Jewish divorced women: single mothers raising children and young divorcees.
Sister to Sister’s trained staff and extensive network of volunteers are keenly attuned to the specific needs of Jewish Orthodox single mothers and their children. Their mission is to support single mothers in regaining their footing and becoming independent, confident women and mothers.
