we are more than a domestic violence shelter

Newhouse is the catalyst to true healing and where survivors of domestic violence become empowered to achieve their full potential.

Transforming Lives


We are a safe shelter for victims fleeing domestic abuse. With 88 beds, Newhouse houses Kansas City women, men, and children who are most in need.


We are the catalyst for survivors of domestic violence to rise through the impacts of trauma by providing an ecosystem of transformative services that lead to safety, self-sufficiency and whole-person healing.


We are committed to investing in and influencing the next generation, knowing this is where we truly have the power to break the cycle of domestic violence.


We value zealous collaboration. Domestic violence is a community health problem. Only when the community links arms, can we shatter the barriers that feed the cycle of abuse.
