About Middle Way House
Since the early 1970s, Middle Way House has been providing services to people in crisis. Today, Middle Way House provides support services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking, including an emergency shelter, a 24/7 help & crisis line, on-scene advocacy, transitional and permanent housing solutions for survivors and their families, legal advocacy, and education and prevention programs. Middle Way House serves six counties in southern Indiana (Monroe, Greene, Lawrence, Owen, Morgan, and Martin) and relies on a staff of 70 and a committed volunteer force to provide around-the-clock response and services to those experiencing abuse and assault. It is not necessary that an individual reside in our emergency shelter or transitional housing program to access most of our services. We believe, support, and affirm the identities of ALL survivors.
