Mother House Expansion
The Mother House was the original home of the National Black Women’s Health Project, founded in 1983.
Women…children…laborers for justice….WELCOME HOME!
In 2007 as part of SisterSong’s tenth anniversary expansion of our programs and services, we purchased the building to house our national office. Thanks to the generosity of the Bert and Mary Meyer Foundation, her previous owners, the Mother House is again home to the national women of color feminist.
She is not only the home of SisterSong, but the Mother House also includes facilities and offices for SisterLove, Inc., a local Atlanta agency that provides services for African American women with HIV/AIDS. SisterLove is one of the original 16 founding members of SisterSong, and brings a reputation of almost 20 years of service delivery for women of color in Georgia.
Why do we need your help?
- SisterSong would love to pay off the mortgage on this property to forever ensure that the Mother House will remain the home for women of color who believe in and work for the human rights of women.
- The Mother House, now over 100 years old, is located in Atlanta’s historic West End. She is listed as a historic property, and because of this, requires special care and service.
