Penelope House



Penelope House helps victims of intimate partner violence to gain social and economic independence through shelter, counseling, advocacy, and referral to community resources and agencies in Mobile, Washington, Choctaw, and Clarke Counties in Alabama. The center can provide refuge for victims and their children when their lives are in imminent danger; the temporary shelter allows escape from a violent situation. The prevention of domestic violence through education and public awareness is the goal of Penelope House. Students must have their own transportation and are forbidden to bring others to service with them due to the undisclosed location of the shelter. Time of service is determined by the Penelope House volunteer coordinator. (This is an approved site for Foley Center direct service.) Joan Duncan
