ORGANIZATION: PEACE HOUSE COMMUNITY

image_20240529110325

Peace House Community is looking for barbers or hairstylists to cut hair for our communtiy members. PHC hosts 100 to 180 community members a day, most of whom cannot afford a professional haircut. PHC's current volunteer barber comes to PHC one day a week and cannot keep up with the demand. He is willing to work with new volunteers to help them develop rapport with the community. New volunteers can choose which day(s) they come to PHC to provide haircuts.

PHC can provide haircutting equipment, or the volunteer can provide their own equipment. PHC does not have facilities for community members to wash their hair before or after cutting.

PHC hosts a diverse community, so experience cutting different types of hair, or providing different types of cuts and styles, is helpful. Cuts can range from shaving someone's head, fades, thinning our bushy hair, to styling a woman's hair. Beard and mustache trims can also be offered.

Peace House Community is a small community center/day center serving the Ventura Village neighborhood in south Minneapolis. Our community members live in the neighborhood and face economic instability, housing uncertainty, social isolation, stigmatization, and similar daily challenges. PHC counters these conditions by providing a safe, welcoming, and affirming community that gets to know its members as individuals.

Mission

Peace House Community (PHC) nourishes its members’ bodies and souls by providing a safe space for everyone. PHC enriches the lives of its members, volunteers and students by offering a place to belong for everyone who comes through its doors.

Vision

Community members who have been wounded by economic and social dislocation will be healed through caring relationships in a supportive community.

Guiding Principles

The following guiding principles enable us to create an atmosphere of cooperation and fairness:

  • Ensure all voices are given an opportunity to express themselves.
  • Respect the diversity of opinions and experiences in the community.
  • Listen to other people with a mind that is open to wisdom from all sources.
  • Practice non-violence through self-restraint, encouraging words, compassionate actions and respectful listening.
  • Accept difficult situations with grace and serenity as we work towards conflict resolution.

PHC relies on volunteers to welcome our community members into a safe and affirming space by sitting with them, hearing their stories and affirming their worth regardless of their life situation. Each day, PHC’s volunteers get to share in the life stories that our community members are -writing. The stories include joys, fears, friendships, loneliness and so much more.

Please call 612-870-7263 or email contact@peacehousecommunity.org for more information.

Description

Peace House Community is a small community center/day center serving the Ventura Village neighborhood in south Minneapolis Monday-Friday from 9:30a-2:30p. Our community members live in the neighborhood and face economic instability, housing uncertainty, social isolation, stigmatization, and similar daily challenges. PHC counters these conditions by providing a safe, welcoming, and affirming community that gets to know its members as individuals.

PHC gives its community members the same experience that most people feel when they hang out in a friend's living room. There is always hot coffee, snacks and a hot lunch. There is no pressure, no need to justify oneself, no invasive questions. Coming to PHC means experiencing acceptance and a respite from the chaos of life on the streets.

PHC serves over 18,000 meals a year and provides a variety of services each day including bicycle repair, hand massages, haircuts, clothes mending and more. Most importantly, we provide a space for volunteers and community members to meet, establish relationships and share a common humanity.
