About Sistering - A Woman's Place:
Founded in 1983, Sistering is a women's organization in Toronto that offers practical and emotional support for women who are homeless, under-housed, low-income or marginalized.

The two studios provide training in sewing, knitting, pottery and other crafts to allow members to generate income through sales, exhibitions and commissions.
Sistering assists more than 2,000 women annually. In F2013, its food access program served 144,000 meals.
