Our Services

If you need immediate help or support, call our 24/7 Help and Crisis Line, Linea de Ayuda : (812) 336-0846

Since 1971, Middle Way House has been providing services to people in crisis. Today, we provide supportive and empowering services for survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence, stalking and human trafficking such as emergency shelter; a 24/7 help and crisis line; on-scene advocacy, transitional and permanent housing solutions; legal advocacy; support groups; personal advocacy; childcare and youth programs; and educational and prevention programs. Middle Way House serves six counties in southern Indiana and relies on a staff of 70 and a volunteer force of 300+ to provide services. It is not necessary that an individual reside in our emergency shelter or transitional housing program to access most of our services.

 Middle Way House provides equality of services and care to ALL survivors, without regard to ethnicity, religion, national origin, age, gender, affectional orientation, disability or income.

Prevention Education

Legal Advocacy

Advocates help residents articulate future goals, determine action steps and time lines for their achievement. They meet with survivors to track progress and make adjustments to the plan. Advocates provide information and referrals to local community resources and various social service agencies to help residents make informed decisions. MWH staff members offer Building Healthy Relationships classes in local schools to educate youth and teens about interpersonal and dating violence. Primary Prevention Coordinators facilitate workshops on primary prevention to organizations and groups interested in this service.
