Sisters offers a space to build community, empower ourselves, learn from one another, dine with dignity and organize for justice and human rights for all. Sisters of the Road exists to build authentic relationships and alleviated the hunger of isolation in an atmosphere of nonviolence and gentle personalism that nurtures the whole individual, while seeking systemic solutions that reach the roots of homelessness and poverty to end the forever.

#1828: Glebe House
Kilcief/Strangford, Northern Ireland
Since 1975 children, young people and adults have been coming to Glebe House for a week, two weeks, a weekend, or a day, to live together, play together, work together, learn together, and while we're at it discover that life can be more interesting, more rewarding, more creative, more adventurous, and more fun than the labels that get stuck on us.
