Our House, Inc. is an agency that assists clients who have been affected by interpersonal violence (domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking). We offer effective prevention programs in an effort to combat violence before it happens in the communities we serve.
The organization was founded in 1995. Our mission is to eliminate interpersonal violence through intervention, prevention, prosecution, victim protection, and sustainable restoration.
Currently Our House has established over 11 programs to address the issue of violence in the family through youth and adult groups and programs. The organization also offers 24hour shelter and hotline services for victims of domestic violence.
Our House, Inc. serves ten counties: Bolivar, Carroll, Grenada, Holmes, Humphreys, Leflore, Montgomery, Sunflower, Sharkey and Washington.
As a non-profit, we are actively seeking passionate, goal oriented and dependable volunteers to assist with the organization’s programs. We believe that volunteers are the backbone of our organization. As Our House, Inc. grows, it is more important than ever to have volunteers to assist with the day-to-day operations, promoting the organization’s mission and providing needed services to our clients and staff.
Volunteering is one of the most respected and simple methods of assisting any organization, as well as rewarding and enjoyable for those who choose to give of themselves. As a volunteer for our agency, individuals will receive valuable training and networking with other agencies and programs in the community.
We are proudly funded by United Way of Washington County and the United Way of Cleveland-Bolivar County. It is our hope that the community continues to support United Way. Their funding is vital to Our House, Inc. success in serving clients and meeting their needs.
