As the founder of the first domestic violence shelter in the nation, in the home that I shared with my three children in 1970, I have come to believe that there are very few people that have not been touched by the ravage of domestic violence, abuse or molestation, be it physical or emotional. For the past 55 years Strengthen Our Sisters continues to fight diligently in the battle to end this, most times it is like walking a tightrope. When founder Sandra Ramos is asked how she does it, the answer is that it is like juggling – struggling. SOS is a nonprofit that sustains itself on private donations and support. Many of the supporters know firsthand that SOS has helped those that nobody else would assist. We are currently operating with a volunteer staff and little or no government funding. I don’t believe in miracles, I depend on them. We want YOU to be part of the miracle. contact Sandra (the founder) at 973-831-0898 or Cheryl at 973-728-0059 .
