Since 1983, Freedom House has provided a safe and free haven for victims of domestic and sexual violence and their children. It serves the residents of Bureau, Henry, Marshall, Putnam, and Stark Counties in Illinois and is supported by public, corporate and private funds.
In addition to shelter services, Freedom House provides domestic and sexual violence prevention programs, prevention programs for grade school and high school students, medical and legal advocacy, and volunteer support.
The facility's current secure location at 440 Elm Place in Princeton provides 16 crisis shelter beds and three apartments, with an additional 12 beds.
A Henry County Outreach office in Kewanee can be reached at (309) 852-4008.
