Violence and abuse can happen to anyone at any time in their lives. When crisis happens, Crisis Intervention Shelter Service, Inc. (CISS) is a place to turn for help. Each year, more than 300 children, adults, and families depend on CISS for lifesaving – and life-changing support to help overcome violence and abuse. Since 1991, we have been there with hotlines, shelters, outreach programs, legal assistance, support groups, and many more services. Our efforts are possible because of caring, compassionate individuals and organizations who believe victims deserve better and brighter futures, without violence and abuse. Thank you for choosing to support CISS and the families and communities we serve.

My cisster's closet

My CISSter’s Closet accepts gently used clothing for men, women and children, boots and shoes, household items, bedding and toys.  My CISSter’s Closet is a vital part of the services provided by the CISS.  In addition to raising money to support Crisis Intervention Shelter Service, Inc, our store serves as a department store for the women and children we serve.  Many women and children come to shelter with nothing but the clothing on their backs.  Every woman who has a need is given an opportunity to select what she needs to start a new life, free from domestic violence.
