We are looking forward to longer, warmer days ahead! The Peace House team is hard at work gearing up for spring and has some exciting opportunities to connect with the community coming up.
March is Women's History Month. The 2022 Women’s History theme, “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” is both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during the ongoing global pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.

The Peace House Residential program provides emergency shelter and transitional housing for those fleeing interpersonal violence or sexual assault. Our residential advocate team works around the clock to provide much-needed services like emotional support, resources referral, crisis de-escalation, safety planning, and more for our clients. Along with being present 24 hours a day, seven days a week for our clients, advocates also answer the 24-hour helpline. Over the last six months, advocates have answered more than 3,000 interpersonal violence-related calls and helped 83 people in our emergency shelter.
