Birmingham’s best kept secret
YWCA’s My Sister’s Closet (MSC) is a resale boutique with a high-end feel at a low cost. Located in the heart of downtown Birmingham, the boutique provides new and gently-used items, including:
MSC prides itself on being a welcoming and supportive atmosphere for women escaping domestic violence, in shelters or in an extreme life transition. However, any woman can get the same high-end shopping experience without the sticker shock.
My Sister’s Closet is a YWCA initiative
What makes MSC so special is that it’s a staple in YWCA’s Economic Empowerment focus. They help build a bridge between the community and organizations that provide opportunities including:
- Workforce development
- Economic advancement
“What I like most about working here (MSC) is serving the community, being able to give back and assisting women in need. We serve women of all walks of life and I love seeing them regain footing to move on and become successful.”Ayana Jointer, Coordinator, My Sister’s Closet
Proceeds from MSC benefit the programs and services of YWCA Central Alabama.
