Welcome to Plumb Place
Plumb Place has served as a refuge for women in need since 1921.
We are located in the historic home of U.S. Sen. Preston and Carrie Plumb at 224 E. Sixth Avenue in Emporia, Kansas.
Our mission is to help women reach their full potential through supportive services and transitional housing. We meet women where they are in life and walk alongside them with compassion.

All program participants have access to intensive case management, life skills education, and a variety of supportive therapeutic or educational groups.

The average stay is nine months to a year.
Plumb Place provides temporary emergency shelter and longer-term transitional housing services to women 18 and over.
Public rooms at the stately Plumb Place are available for meetings and events.
