Raising the House



Raising the House logoIn 2006, Sisters Network® Inc. launched the Raising the House campaign. The campaign is dedicated to raising $3.5 million for the Sister House initiative.


The Sister House is based on the founder’s vision to provide an inviting “home away from home” atmosphere for breast cancer survivors, families, and the community. It also serves as the National Headquarters.


On December 15, 2008, Sisters Network Inc. (SNI) announced the purchase and plans to open the Sister House near Houston's world renowned medical center. SNI plans to use the new facility as the organization's national headquarters, provide sleeping quarter accommodations to breast cancer survivors and their families who come to Houston for advanced medical treatment and to serve as a community information resource and a meeting location to support Sisters Network breast health outreach initiatives on a local and national basis.


SNI - Raising the HouseLocated in the Midtown area at 2922 Rosedale Street, approximately 2 miles from Houston's medical center, the two story Sister House main building has 5 rooms, 3 full baths and one half bath, gourmet kitchen for healthy food instruction and oversized garage space. A separate 2 bedroom/ 1 bath apartment with its own kitchen/living room and double garage with a separate entrance to the property.


I am so humbled that the vision of opening the Sister House, a warm, inviting and informative facility to educate/empower the African American community about the importance of breast health and to provide accomodations for all breast cancer survivors has become a reality. Sisters Network has made a major impact nationally and locally on the issue of breast cancer, but there is much more work to be done. The Sister House provides a wonderful foundation for our organization reach the next level. We have accomplished Phase One of a three phase vision---we are blessed, " said Karen E. Jackson, CEO/Founder, Sisters Network Inc.
