Our Sisters’ House (OSH) is a 10-bed temporary shelter in Tomahawk, located next to St. Mary’s at 328 E. Washington Avenue. Our mission is to end episodic and cyclical homelessness in Lincoln County by providing a safe temporary residence and the needed help for a person to develop a financially sound future and obtain a stable permanent residence.
We can admit individuals and families who are facing homelessness, as long as they can pass a drug and alcohol screen and do not have any felony convictions and are not registered sex offenders. Persons are allowed to stay for up to three months and during that time our case manager works with them to design an individualized plan to become financially self-sufficient and to obtain permanent housing. We maintain a strict zero-tolerance policy on drug and alcohol use. Residents are expected to help with household chores and to behave in a civil manner towards staff and other residents.
