The 17th Annual Setting a Place for My Sister got underway with a packed house! This year, Sister’s Place honored Jones Day by presenting them and managing partner Laura Ellsworth with the Community Partner Award for their ongoing service to Sisters Place. A very special performance by the Sisters Place Children had everyone on their feet as these amazing youngsters danced, sang and performed for the audience. Lights were dimmed as they donned glow hopes around their necks.

Sisters Place ¬†also honored a resident at Sisters Place as the Resident of the Year~ for overcoming great obstacles and making tremendous achievements along an emotional journey from homelessness toward self-sufficiency. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room as this year’s recipient spoke about her incredible story and what brought her to where she is today.

For those who don’t know, Sisters Place is a supportive houseing community committed to assisting single parent families who are homeless in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Their mission is to assist families toward self-sufficiency by providing housing and supportive services.

year’s event was hosted by Sally Wiggin, WTAE-TV.
