The Abby’s House mission is to provide the WOU community with educational programming, information, and referral services designed to promote equity and non-violence. We embrace a feminist model that empowers all people to actively stand against all forms of violence, harassment, verbal abuse, discrimination, and hatred.
The Western Oregon University Food Pantry was founded in September 2012 in response to the campus-wide issue of food insecurity. This student-led and student-run resource has a mission to reduce the growing problem of food insecurity on Western’s campus and in the Monmouth-Independence community by providing food that is both nutritious and fulfilling. The Food Pantry is coordinated by two student coordinators and a team of dedicated campus and community volunteers.
