Mission Statement

Peace House is a charitable organization dedicated to ending family violence and abuse through education, outreach, support services, and shelter.

Description

In 1992, the shocking murder of a woman by her estranged husband in a Park City parking lot energized community leaders to do something about domestic violence. They formed a Domestic Peace Task Force and in 1995 the Peace House shelter became a reality.

For the first few years, Peace House operated entirely with volunteers. Today, the shelter is a state-licensed facility with trained staff on site 24/7. We continue to rely on a cadre of volunteers to supplement the small paid staff.

In the years since it began as a safe haven for victims of domestic violence, Peace House has evolved to include community education and awareness programs designed to reduce the violence and abuse in our communities. We also provide many support services to victims outside of the shelter.
