Providing transitional housing to promote an independent and productive lifestyle to victims of domestic violence and their children.
Providing community awareness to the prevalent incidents of family violence through education and training programs.
Our organization was the initial provider of domestic violence services in San Bernardino County. Option House came from a broad-base of services under the Coalition for Prevention of Abuse of Women and Children.
Operating under the Central Valley Mental Health Association, the original shelter opened September 1977 in Colton. In 1980, the Coalition for the Prevention of Abuse of Women and Children was the umbrella agency. And, finally, in 1982, Option House incorporated. In June 1983, Option House moved to its current site, a 5000 square foot building (original Temporary Crisis Intervention Shelter Program). It was the first building built specifically to house battered women and their children in the state, the second in the nation!
