Who We Are
A Distinct Identity
Our Sisters’ House (OSH) is a non-profit organization located in Tacoma, Washington. The agency was founded in 1995 as a group home for adjudicated and homeless teenage girls. In 2001, OSH expanded its services to support women of color who have been affected by domestic violence by providing advocacy, legal services and prevention programs. Today, OSH provides advocacy, education and support to women, youth and families that have been victimized and impacted by domestic violence through four key programs: New Directions, Stepping Stones, Sisters Seeking Change, and Community Advocacy.
