The Mission of the Alice Paul House is to promote awareness of domestic violence, sexual assault, and victimization in our community through primary prevention and educational programs; to assist and empower all victims of crime; and to provide safety to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
The Alice Paul House is always looking for caring individuals to volunteer!
Our innovative training course now includes an online component!
The Alice Paul House was founded on March 1, 1982 by Mary J. Banks, the original shelter was run out of Mary's own home, until she realized the need for shelter was far greater then she could give.
In February of 1979 Mary met with Lenore Patton to discuss the need for a designated crisis shelter in our community. Eventually they received a grant for a domestic violence and rape crisis shelter, a donation of land from the Indiana County Commissioners, and a work crew provided by ICCAP. Because of this the shelter was opened on March 1, 1982.
The Alice Paul House has grown through the years both in the number of staff and volunteers as well as the services provided. Alice Paul House recognizes that domestic violence, sexual assault, and victims of other crimes, are not discriminatory based on gender, age, culture, race, occupation, sexual orientation, or economics. Our staff provides services to females as well as males, children and elderly, rich and poor, LGBTQ, attorneys, doctors, and the unemployed, to name only a few.
Moving into our 32nd year we are proud to provide those in need shelter services, legal and medical advocacy, individual and group counseling, education and prevention programs as well as crime victims compensation guidance.
