We provide services to all men, women and children regardless of age, sex, ethnic background or sexual orientation. These services are provided at no cost to victims, and are CONFIDENTIAL.
APH Mission Statement
The Mission of 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.
In February of 1979 Mary J. Banks met with Lenore Patton to discuss the need to establish a crisis shelter for the Indiana community.
Alice Paul House was founded on March 1, 1982. The original shelter was run out of Mary’s own home. Soon she realized that the need for the shelter within the community was far greater than her home could provide.
1983 - 2015
Alice Paul House services expand to include victims of sexual assault, other crime, and victims of crime committed by juvenile offenders; as well as educational outreach.
Alice Paul House continues to expand their services to meet the needs of the men, women, and children victims/survivors and significant others of Indiana County.
"...so frightened and injured, she called me to save her."
