Alyta and Jennifer met while volunteering for a financial self-help program. After a few years of volunteering together, they became fast friends and sisters. Their desire to do more to assist the women they encountered became the topic of many conversations and A Sisters Place was born.
A Sisters Place (ASP) had been a dream for many years but the need for ASP is greater now more than ever. As the divide between disadvantaged communities and the wealthy American 1% has grown astronomically, these communities are affected by low wages, predatory lending businesses, and financial literacy barriers.
ASP was established as a place to foster hopes and dreams. It has also been developed as a safe place to implement and execute a plan for financial freedom by utilizing partnerships and opportunities with our corporate community. Our business model reflects that of a village in which an individual gains knowledge then passes it on to new sisters (members) down the line. We understand people learn differently so we will have traditional learning opportunities as well as experiences to reinforce the financial principals.

President & Co-Founder
Alyta’s journey of volunteerism started about 40 years ago when her mother would take her to volunteer with her for the grassroots organization, Citizens in Action located in Philadelphia PA. Volunteering and Activism were taught to Alyta and her siblings early on by her mother’s example.
Alyta attended school in both Pennsylvania and Virginia, which she now calls home. Alyta has worked in leadership with our military active duty and their families for over 25 years. She worked with the American Red Cross for 15 years and has continued to volunteer with many local and national charities.
Her greatest passion has become helping other manifest their vision for their lives. While working with the national organization “Dream Catchers Alyta attained her certification in life coaching to better assist the women in the Hampton Roads Chapter which she helped manage.
Her belief in when you educate a woman you are educating a generation has prompted her to continue reaching out.
