Welcome to Abby’s House!

A place where you are never alone.

Abby’s House is OPEN during the break!  

We are open from 9am-5pm and are offering zoom meetings over the holidays

Abby’s House is located in the Werner Center (WUC) in room 106

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

  • Abby’s House now 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 or help after business hours, contact Sable House at 1-866-518-0284 (24/7). 
  • The Food Pantry is open! It’s located in the Welcome Center next to the mail room. Our holiday hours are: Monday 4-6 pm, Tuesday 2-4 pm, Wednesday 12-2 pm but we are CLOSED the week of December 27th.
  • Peer Outreach and Support Educators (POSE) staff our Abby’s House email and office space. 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 certain information to the university.
  • 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.
