September Update

Our first workshop was a success!

We played in the play room and on the playground, had a drawing session and watched movies!

We’re excited for the rest of our workshops coming up this year!


May Update

We had a wonderful time coloring pictures indoors
and then we took the party outside to play on the jungle gym.
We winded it down with 
🍿 snacks.

July Update:

Our July workshop last night was a little different than our normal workshops! Most of the families were away for the holiday so one beautiful 6 month baby boy got our full attention. It would of been easy to walk away and not stay, but the reason Chicktime Washington shows up every month is to do what we got to do last night… give unconditional love to the families that come to My Sister’s Place. We feel honored to be part of a place that seeks to end domestic violence and empower survivors to live healthy, independent lives free from violence and abuse. 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence by severe physical abuse. 15 million children are exposed to domestic violence each year. We will be back next month and the next month and the month after that! We hope you will join us!
