APH Mission Statement

The mission of Alice Paul House is to educate, advocate, and empower all victims/survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, other crime and juvenile offenders.

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.
