Peace House relies heavily on community support, especially volunteers to keep our doors open. Volunteers at Peace House provide an additional source of support, connection, and services for our clients. They also allow our full-time staff to avoid fatigue and continue to provide high levels of care. Peace House is committed to providing a fulfilling, unique, social, and diverse volunteering experience. We have volunteer opportunities for groups, families, or individuals.
