At Peace House we believe that community outreach is vital to our mission of preventing abuse and violence and offering counseling, case management, and other assistance to victims of abuse.
In an effort to keep the community informed Peace House leads community presentations on intimate partner violence with information on Peace House services, additional community resources, and the systems in place to assist victims. Most importantly, we aim to help victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault improve safety and stability by assisting them with a culturally informed safety plan.
Peace House routinely participates in community events with culturally diverse content, building trust, awareness, and partnerships with community members in Summit and Wasatch counties. Ensuring that our community is aware of our services is paramount to making sure that victims know they have the support and assistance they need to recover from abuse and violence in the home.
Peace House provides safe and confidential support groups designed to provide culturally-informed emotional, educational, and practical assistance for victims of abuse and sexual violence. Support group participants discuss shared experiences and provide help to other survivors. Support groups have shown a significant increase in participants' feelings of support, overall well-being, and stress levels.
