In 2015, founder Kavian Baker, was driven by her own challenges as a single mother not aware of the resources available in the area and not qualifying for public benefits. Taken by her own experiences, Mrs. Baker, was determined to start an organization for individuals and families who face financial hardships and treat them with dignity and respect, regardless or their reason or circumstance. So, she set the organization apart by building relationships and helping individuals and families navigate the gaps in services that so often act as a barrier to independence and self-sufficiency. Starting as part time support for 4 families in 2015, Sisters for Society has grown to help 279 families and now distributes over 300 food boxes per year.
Sisters for Society recognizes the need for integrated and closely coordinated services for this vulnerable population. We have active relationships with more than 10 community organizations providing critical services like youth entrepreneurship, housing for homeless, home repairs for disabled and elderly, and counseling for families.
