Our Grand Opening! 

Shelter our Sisters hosted a Grand Opening/Open House at its new Community Program Center at 12 Overlook Avenue in Rochelle Park, NJ on Monday, June 9 from 5 to 7 pm.  The Ribbon Cutting took place at 6 pm with elected officials, staff, volunteers and supporters. Shelter our Sisters (SOS) has brought together under one roof all of its non-emergency services for individuals and families affected by domestic violence. The event included informal tours of the building, which consolidates programs and services previously scattered among four locations throughout Bergen County. SOS Executive Director Elaine Meyerson stated “We desperately needed the new space to meet the growing demand for our services. Our new center will help us serve the broader community more effectively—and visibly—by reaching out to more people in need and making it easier for them to reach out to us”.
