About Us Home / About Us

The mission of Newhouse is to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing the tools that allow women to make positive choices and lead self-sufficient lives.

We accomplish our mission through our values and beliefs:

  • We value inclusiveness, striving to maintain diversity of age, race, sexual orientation, religion, differently-abled, sex, and national origin
  • We value integrity, trust and ethics within our service delivery.
  • We value the philosophy of empowerment.
  • We believe in providing a safe, healing environment, which includes physical, spiritual, psychological, and emotional components, as well as ongoing supportive services.
  • We believe that early intervention with children will maximize the potential of breaking the intergenerational cycle of abuse.
  • We believe in educating the community about domestic violence and the services that Newhouse staff members provide.
