Organizational Description: SISTARS is a registered charitable, volunteer organization that owns and operates 99 Euclid Avenue in North Point Douglas Winnipeg.

We own, operate and maintain Barber House, an award-winning Heritage building that is over 100 years old, adaptively designed to integrate with our childcare centre. Barber House provides low-cost rent to community groups, including the North Point Douglas Seniors Association.

We support all communities by providing quality licensed childcare through the Eagle Wing Child Care Centre. Eagle Wing not only provides quality childcare for local children, it also provides educational opportunities through financial support and practicum positions. Nurturing the potential of children and families is our way of connecting to community and empowering change.

Through our building and community garden we provide a safe, inclusive and accessible neighbourhood place that supports community development and supports opportunities for intergenerational learning.
