Attorney Elliotte Quinn Joins Board at My Sister's House
The Steinberg Law Firm proudly announces our construction law attorney, Elliotte Quinn, joined the board of directors for My Sister’s House. Elliotte is honored to be joining the board of directors of such a vital organization.
Elliotte’s life has been privileged and blessed in so many ways he did not earn or deserve. As a result, he feels called to help those who suffer from unfortunate circumstances. Elliotte began volunteering with My Sister’s House as a court advocate as a small way to repay all the blessings he has received from his community. His volunteering quickly turned into providing free legal representation to women seeking court orders for protection from their abusers.
Through his work with My Sister’s House helping domestic violence victims, Elliotte has been consistently amazed by the incredible work My Sister’s House is doing both to help women escape from the cycle of domestic violence and to advocate against and prevent future domestic violence. He also feels privileged to have met the courageous women he has had the opportunity to represent. Elliotte also has two young daughters, and like all parents, he wants them to live in a better world. To further his involvement with helping victims of domestic violence and addressing domestic violence in our community, Elliotte accepted a position on My Sister’s House’s board of directors.
My Sister’s House was founded in 1980 to fill the need for a shelter for women and their children who are victims of domestic violence. While My Sister’s House evolved over the years, the goal has always been to provide services and resources to empower victims of domestic violence to live free from abuse. In addition to continuing to provide a shelter for victims, the organization also provides counseling, assistance navigating the legal system, assistance with obtaining employment and housing, and a crisis phone line.
My Sister’s House partners with the South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (SCCADVASA). This partnership aims to break the cycle of domestic abuse first in the Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester area and then throughout South Carolina.
The organization holds many events throughout the year which help raise awareness of domestic violence and My Sister’s House’s services. In October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, My Sister’s House hosts an Annual Luncheon and Walk A Mile In Her Shoes. In May of 2019, the 3rd Annual “Driving to End Domestic Violence” Golf Tournament will raise awareness and funds to end domestic violence in the Lowcountry.
My Sister’s House also encourages individuals and businesses to host a Party With Purpose, which can take place anywhere and anytime. Invitations, some branded party supplies, and a speaker are provided, while the host provides the guests, location, and food. These parties help raise money to assist women and their children in moving forward to a better life.
My Sister’s House has many more ways to be involved, from donating online to becoming a volunteer. They keep updated lists of Urgent Needs and on Amazon and have donation bins located throughout the three counties to collect used clothing or household items. You can also support My Sister’s House whenever you place an AmazonSmile order by making them your preferred charity.
The Steinberg Law Firm is proud to support My Sister’s House in their care of women and children and their efforts to address and prevent domestic violence. We are honored to now further our involvement with Elliotte’s appointment to the board.
