WHITE PLAINS—The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, recently presented a check for $2,500 to My Sisters’ Place of White Plains.

For more than 40 years, My Sisters’ Place has been Westchester’s pioneering leader and resource in the field of domestic violence and human trafficking. MSP provides a continuum of direct services for adult and child victims (shelter, counseling, legal services and education), effectively responding to the needs of families and individuals in crisis.

Each year, the agency reaches more than 15,000 people through direct services, education and outreach. Serving clients of all socioeconomic, cultural and religious backgrounds, MSP’s multi-lingual and culturally sensitive services are designed to meet the specific needs of each client with the goal of ensuring they can experience healing and move forward from trauma toward a peaceful and fulfilling life.

My Sisters’ Place strives to end domestic violence and human trafficking through comprehensive services, advocacy and community education, and works to create a world in which every individual has the basic human right to be free from gender-based violence and to engage in relationships that embrace the principles of respect, equality, and safety.

“We are so grateful to be the beneficiary of this wonderful grant,” said Karen Cheeks-Lomax, Esq., CEO of My Sisters’ Place. “We are stronger joining forces with partners like the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, who share a commitment to our mission to help survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking.”

Since 2014, the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley. As concerned members of the communities we work in, the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation participates in qualified community-based charities who serve the housing, hunger, health, happiness, and humane needs of citizens everywhere.
