About UsFounded in 2001, My Sister's Closet is a social enterprise of Battered Women's Support Services (BWSS). As advocates of zero waste, eco-fashion and the thrift movement, we enable all genders to access beautiful new and second-hand clothing and locally made artisan creations by women. 100 percent of revenue generated from sales help fund the violence prevention and intervention services and programs operated by BWSS, supporting more than 18,000 requests we receive annually.
We welcome donations of laundered, gently used or new adult clothing and accessories for donation. While our typical practice is to have donors come say hello whenever our stores are open, during these times we ask that you give us a call at 778-996-5451 or write us an email at email@example.com as to make sure someone is available and that we are able to practice safe social distancing.
We Are Here For You During COVID-19
Battered Women’s Support Services (BWSS) Crisis Line remains open, providing emotional support to women experiencing gender-based domestic violence and/or uncertainty during these difficult times. While people are encouraged to stay at home, you may feel isolated from your friends and family.
If you need to plan around leaving, call our crisis line during a safe time at 604-687-1867 or 1-855-687-1868, text 604-652-1867 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Give The Gift of Safety
In dire situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic, women-serving organizations such as us here at BWSS need to remain available and provide support to women and their families. Our sources of funding are drastically affected with limited resources, including the recent temporary closure of our My Sister’s Closet boutiques due to COVID-19. We need your support now more than ever.
