Through symposiums, workshops and forums, Angie's House works to educate the community on the dynamics of domestic violence, the impact of exposure to domestic violence on children, and strategies for supporting children who have been exposed to violence.

Work with Angie's House and make a difference in your community!
15.5 million children in the United States live in families in which partner violence occurred at least once in the past year, and seven million children live in families in which severe partner violence occurred.
Children who grow up with violence in the home learn early and powerful lessons about the use of violence in interpersonal relationships. They learn that violence is an acceptable way to assert one's views, get one's way or to discharge stress.
Our mission is to inspire action to end domestic violence and to educate the community about the impact of family violence on children and families. Angie's House is a vocal advocate for children who are exposed to family violence. Parents or caregivers involved in a violent relationship may think that the fighting does not affect their children, but it does. Help us break the cycle.

Angie’s House, Inc. was created out of a need to bring attention to children and youth who are exposed to violence in the home. We focus exclusively on breaking the cycle of abuse and on helping the community to understand that intimate partner violence affects children and youth regardless of race, ethnicity, class, sexual and gender identity, religious affiliation, age, or immigration status.
