Our mission: Stone House makes a difference in our community by caring for and protecting adult and child survivors of domestic abuse, and helping them rebuild safe, secure, independent lives of purpose and self-fulfillment.
Stone House opened its doors in 1974 as an alternative to institutionalization for women with mental health issues. Since then, we’ve evolved into a robust, inclusive and essential home/community space for adult, child and family survivors of domestic violence.
Like a traditional stone house, our facility provides protection, safety and an overall sense of well-being. Our tailored programs for care, assistance and personal enrichment help rebuild lives — enabling futures with enduring hope, purpose and fulfillment.
Treating multiple traumas. Nurturing the entire being.
Domestic violence is about more than physical, emotional, sexual and psychological acts. It’s about power and control. Stone House combines the security of a safe environment with a range of programs and services — residential and community based — to support trauma recovery, personal growth and development of essential life skills. Our overarching mission is to help participants create a path to a secure, positive and fulfilling life.
The tangible difference we make: year-in and year-out.
Our new integrated supportive housing and community-based service complex is designed to provide expanded services to more than 2,000 clients and community members each year. Examples from 2021 include:
