Community Awareness

Community awareness programs are used to familiarize our local community to Peace House’s programs and services, as well as our “3 R’s Model” to recognize, respond, and refer domestic and sexual violence victims to Peace House for help.

Domestic and sexual violence are public health issues that affect the community as a whole. We need your help in spotting this violence and assisting each member of our society including educating them that they each have the right to live a life free from violence. We work with these organizations to partner with community members and bring awareness to domestic and sexual violence prevention.

Peace House is currently involved with the following coalitions, committees and subcommittees:

  • Caring Communities Coalition Wasatch County 
  • Communities that Care Coalition Summit County 
  • The Wasatch Latino Coalition- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Subcommittee 
  • Wasatch Latino Coalition
