The mission of Alternative House is to facilitate the creation of a society in which violence and oppression will no longer exist. As a means to this end, we offer access to shelter, support, children’s programming, legal, housing, and community advocacy for all victims of domestic violence (and their children) who seek our help. 


We are committed to the empowerment of all victims toward self-sufficiency. We do not discriminate against any race, class, culture, age group or sexual orientation. In addition, we provide community education and support to reform societal attitudes that permit violence and oppression against anyone.



June is LGBTQ+   Pride Month!

June is Pride Month, when the world's LGBTQ+ communities come together and celebrate the freedom to be themselves. This month we take time to celebrate our LGBTQ+ community.

Stay Healthy and Safe.

June is PTSD Awareness Month

During June we also take time to bring awareness to the condition of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This month is intended to help raise public awareness about issues related to PTSD, reduce the stigma around the condition, and help to ensure those suffering receive the proper treatment.
