Alternatives Incorporated, embraced as a Cooperating Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis at the 2004 Convention, is a 501(c)(3) organization operating with the following mission:
“Alternatives Incorporated strives to eradicate domestic and sexual violence through education, prevention, and intervention in Central Indiana.”
Alternatives is one of 31 domestic violence shelters in the State of Indiana. The agency is physically located in Anderson but is assigned by the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence to provide emergency shelter for domestic violence victims from the counties of Hamilton, Hancock, Henry, Madison, Tipton and as an “overflow” for Marion County when their shelters are at capacity. We also shelter victims and their children from other counties and states when they have been forced to relocate for safety.
