Sistering, a charitable organization serving homeless, low-income and marginalized women in Toronto has recently re-located it's College Street Drop-In and administrative services to make room for condominiums. While still in need of a long-term home, Sistering has settled into it's temporary new location in the old Heydon Park Secondary School.

Founded in 1981, Sistering has been supporting homeless, low-income and socially isolated women through practical and emotional support in the Toronto community for over 23 years. And for 10 of those years, Sistering's Drop-In and administrative offices have been located at 523 College Street. Open 7 days per week, the Drop-In sees nearly 100 women each day.

Sistering's offers a safe and welcome space and provides hot meals, showers and laundry facilities, access to health care professionals, clothing donations, support groups, housing services, pre-employment and community development initiatives to thousands of women annually, many who struggle with mental health, violence and abuse issues on a daily basis.
