These beautiful quilts have a wonderful story behind them. The quilt squares were created by members of the Amish Community who attended Amish Health and Safety Days in 2011. There are many uplifting and inspiring quotes for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. The quilts were lovingly made by our child counselor, Holly Alexander, and a former counselor with Every Woman's House, Stacie Tschiegg. One quilt will be displayed at Julia's Place (the Shelter) and the other in the Millersburg office, offering hope to all of our survivors.

- Family Justice Center Survey -
Every Woman’s House is participating in a community initiative to consider starting a Family Justice Center in our community.
Simply, a Family Justice Center will provide a combination of services and interventions from one location to help victims and offenders break the cycle of violence and develop healthy relationships. Many victims report that they must seek assistance from multiple agencies to break free from their abusive relationship. Some of these agencies include: Every Woman’s House, Victim’s Assistance, Police or Sheriff, Children’s Services, Job and Family Services, Metro, etc. By having these agencies work more collaboratively the result should be simpler and more effective for victims and their families.
We are interested in understanding more about your experience with domestic violence. If you have been the victim of domestic violence or know someone who has been, please consider taking this survey so we can learn from your experience.
Mission:To promote the healing of individuals and families who experience the impact of domestic violence or sexual assault. We are committed to the prevention of these crimes.
Vision: Every Woman's House is committed to building a community free of violence where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. We collaborate and partner with other organizations and individuals in the community to end the cycle of violence. Every Woman's House will provide leadership to these efforts by staying abreast of best practices and state and national trends that will help us to be more successful in achieving our mission.
Gault Liberty Center
Every Woman's House of Liberty Center Connections is headquartered in the historic, Gault Liberty Center. The building, originally opened in 1907 as a carriage factory for the Gerstenslager Company. Gerstenslager continued building carriages until the early 1920's when they entered the automotive world and soon outgrew their factory and moved to a new facility in Wooster.
For many years, the building was a warehouse operating as the "Reed Warehouse" until the late 1990's, at which time the building was purchased, restored and transformed into a beautiful office facility to house Every Woman's House and the Wayne County Alcoholism Services (now known as STEPs at Liberty Center). Both organizations make up Liberty Center Connections.
