Welcome to Alternatives

Alternatives Incorporated strives to eradicate domestic and sexual violence through education, prevention, and intervention in Central Indiana.

Alternatives philosophy is all persons have the right to live in a loving, caring, safe and secure environment. We support victims through the initial crisis with the ultimate strategy of helping them achieve abuse-free and financially independent lives.

Our services are comprehensive and collaborative. They include:

  • Emergency shelter
  • Transitional Housing (for a maximum of two years)
  • 24-Hour crisis call center
  • 24-Hour crisis response team
  • Emergency and essential transportation
  • Case management and ancillary services
  • Support, referral, and advocacy for victims of domestic and sexual violence
  • Specialized children's services
