What We Do




Independence House teen programs are dedicated to providing free and confidential services for teenagers who have been impacted by domestic and sexual violence. Our teen services are accessible to all teens who are ages 13-17, all genders, all sexual orientations, all cultures and all languages, all abilities and all disabilities. Independence House is a LGBTQI+ Safe Space. Teens are encouraged to work with a counselor who can help determine which services may be most beneficial.

An Independence House teen counselor will meet with teens at any Independence House office (Hyannis, Falmouth, Orleans, Provincetown). In some instances, Independence House can meet with teens at your school if allowed by your school with the proper private space provided.

Independence House teen counselors are also available to talk confidentially through the chat messenger on the teen website (during business hours), through direct phone text at 508-375-5144 (during business hours), and anytime through the Independence House 24-hour hotline (800-439-6507).  Visit our Connect With Us page for all ways to connect with Independence House.
