Speakers and Agency Tours

Sistering can send a speaker or two to your workplace, your church group or your community gathering to share information on a number of topics around homelessness, hunger, housing and personal stories. Sistering participants speak to the lived experience of poverty and homelessness, and to changes needed to assist women. Most presentations take 10 - 15 minutes and are accompanied by newsletters, brochures and a photo display. Our executive director, Patricia O'Connell, is also available to speak on the conditions of life for homeless, low income and marginalized women in Toronto and the actions needed to make change.

Sheryl has been working with and advocating for women experiencing homelessness, poverty and trauma for many years.
Our speakers are able to attend day, evening and weekend gatherings.
Please call 416-926-9762 ext. 239 for more information.

Agency Tours

Sistering offers agency tours of our program space.

A tour will give you information about Sistering that is hard to come by any other way. How do we manage to provide meals for over 100 women per day? How do we structure the use of the laundry facilities? Where does our pre-employment program take place?

Tours are given by staff, volunteers and/or participants. Generally, tours can be arranged for our Bloor Street Drop In Monday-Sunday, while the Parkdale Drop In and Outreach is Monday-Friday. We can accommodate most requests. All individuals and groups are welcome to arrange a tour – we just ask that you are respectful of the women’s space.

Please call in advance to arrange your tour around our few closure dates. You can contact our Administration Office at 416-926-9762 or email us at
