Abby's House, Center for Equity & Gender Justice


Welcome to the Abby’s House website!

We are the Center for Equity & Gender Justice on Western Oregon University’s Campus.

Abby’s House is OPEN!  

The center is open Monday: 12pm-5pm & Tuesday-Friday 9am-5pm

Abby’s House is located in the Werner Center (WUC) in Room 106. Please refer to the Peer Outreach and Support Educators (POSE) Calendar under the ‘About Us’ tab for our weekly staffing schedule. 

To best understand how Abby’s House can serve you as a student, here are a couple of clarifications. Many things have changed since the start of the pandemic. 

  • Abby’s House has a Confidential Advocate. This individual is available to talk to students and provide support services related to domestic/dating violence, sexual violence, and stalking. This person is not required to report to the University or law enforcement information that is shared privately with our advocate. To speak to a confidential advocate email to schedule an appointment. For emergencies, contact Sable House at 1-866-518-0284 (24/7). 
  • Peer Outreach and Support Educators (POSE) staff our Abby’s House email, chat, and office space. As mentioned above, POSE staff are WOU students and are mandatory reporters. We are happy to listen and help process, but under the condition that all parties understand we are required to report out to other agencies. 
  • Currently, POSE staff are mainly focused on programming, social media outreach, and referrals. If you like to be referred to one of our service partners or are interested in an event we are putting on, please reach out! You can stay up to date with us via our social media accounts: Instagram- @abbyshouse_wou
  • Abby’s House best serves WOU students. If you are a member of the larger Monmouth/Independence community, we will refer you to community resources that can best serve you.
