Programs

Beasister2asister provides free services for survivors, funded by our partners. We appreciate their genergetic and partnership with us! We are continually expanding our organization and hope to add more services in the future.

Listed here are the current services offered:

  • The Round Table: open discussions for women to engage in conversation where they can feel comfortable sharing and asking questions. It helps women think about the similarities that they may share with survivors. It helps to learn the signs of someone who is being sexually exploited, and what women who are not from the United States go through when they are brought here. They offer the opportunity to learn traditions of other cultures.its breaks the awkward silence and stigma between women and survivors.
  • Accompaniment Program: We pair up women of different backgrounds together with women who have suffered physical abuse, domestic violence and sexual exploitation. They are the sister that these women are missing or never had in the first place. This program is designed for the sister to come alongside the survivor, in support. It may be accompanying them to doctor’s appointments, filling out important paperwork, going to the grocery store, etc. Most of all this is about being there for her when she feels alone and afraid, so that she will know someone is there for her and she does not have to go through this transition alone.
