Alternative House (Women in Transition)

aka Alternative House   |   Lowell, MA   |  http://alternative-house.org/

Mission

The mission of Alternative House is to facilitate the creation of a society in which violence against women will no longer exist. As a means to this end, we offer shelter, support, options, counseling and legal advocacy for all women who have experienced domestic violence (and their children) who seek our help. We are committed to the empowerment of women towards self-sufficiency. We do not discriminate against any race, class, culture, age group or sexual orientation. In addition, we provide community education to reform the societal attitudes that encourage a permissive attitude towards violence against women.
