Narrative

Founded in 1974.

Mission

 The mission of the Elizabeth Stone House is to serve homeless families and individuals in a goal-oriented, outcome-driven service environment by resolving the issues that made them homeless – domestic violence, substance abuse, and mental illness – so that they can attain and maintain permanent housing, personal safety, and economic stability.

 The Elizabeth Stone House Philosophy

The Elizabeth Stone House believes that violence against women, men and children can have devastating effects on mental health and self-esteem. Addiction and mental health issues can be coping mechanisms that develop from experiencing trauma and services that address recovery and healing must recognize the relationship these issues have with one another. The Stone House specializes in working with survivors of abuse and violence who suffer from additional mental health and substance abuse problems.

Simply providing a safe space is not enough to address the origin of the struggles that afflict women and children who are survivors of abuse and trauma. The Stone House works in partnership with individuals to develop practical, step-by-step goals that tackle the complexity of issues that each is facing.

The Elizabeth Stone House is dedicated to providing services that are comprehensive, multi-cultural, and humanistic and respect the dignity of each individual and family. The Stone House honors independence and knows that what works for one person may not work for another. The Stone House builds on the strengths of each individual and family and celebrates milestones and accomplishments on their road to self-determination and healing.

The Elizabeth Stone House believes that by helping one another, individuals can overcome obstacles that may seem insurmountable to each one individually. Peer support is one of the most effective ways to make and maintain changes in individuals, families, and communities, and is the foundation of the Stone House philosophy.
