About Us

The name OneEighty came into being in early 2016 as the culmination of a long-term effort to rename and rebrand Liberty Center Connections, the parent organization for STEPS at Liberty Center and Every Woman's House.  

OneEighty provides six primary services to Wayne and Holmes Counties in Ohio. This site details the services provided and offers easy ways to access the services. If you, a friend or a family member are in need of our services, don't wait - contact us today.
