About Us

HISTORY

The identity of OneEighty was announced in 2016. The new name is used to communicate a dynamic, integrated health system which had previously been known as Liberty Center Connections (LCC). LCC did business under two names - STEPS at Liberty Center and Every Woman’s House.

OneEighty’s History is the combination of two stories, which over time have merged, to find a home under one umbrella. In 1974, STEPS at Liberty Center (formerly Wayne County Alcoholism Services) began as a one-person operation. The agency has grown to offer a full continuum of substance abuse prevention, intervention and treatment services. In 2005, the agency was selected as one of thirteen providers to participate in a national program tasked with improving the treatment and outcomes of individuals facing substance abuse challenges, called Network for the Improvement of Addiction Treatment (NIATx). Since its inception, NIATx has grown to include over 1,000 treatment providers. OneEighty remains actively involved in this effort.

Every Woman’s House began in 1978, when a group of women in Wayne County, Ohio began meeting informally to discuss the need to serve women who were victims of family violence—especially those trying to flee from an abusive partner. The women began using volunteer efforts to provide shelter and support to battered women and rape victims. In 1982, the donation of an eleven-room house allowed the agency to offer a short-term domestic violence shelter, while also expanding their services to include victim advocacy, counseling, support groups, and a 24-hour hotline. The same level of quality service which had been established for decades by Every Woman’s House and STEPS at Liberty Center is still the standard at OneEighty.
