-BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN CHURCH AND COMMUNITY-
We believe ending generational poverty will take a multifaceted approach, and one of the ways we purpose to make an impact is through a transitional housing program in Jackson county. Our transitional housing program will serve homeless families with a vision to train, equip and encourage them to become healthy families. Our vision includes a tiny home village and community center where families can be mentored, take classes, learn how to manage their money and other valuable life skills.
Peace Place, Inc. empowers victims, survivors and our communities to break the cycle of domestic violence through the provision of safe shelter, supportive services, and community awareness in Banks, Barrow and Jackson counties. We strive to empower our clients by assisting those in need of safe shelter, advocacy, resources, support groups, children’s and teen programs, legal and outreach and promotion of self and self care in order to move through the trauma of domestic violence and into a life of peace and happiness.
Our philosophy is simple – break the cycle of domestic violence. Since our inception, Peace Place has provided safe shelter for over 2,200 women, men, and children. Throughout the years following the establishment of Peace Place, the programs and services have continued to multiply. In 2007, Peace Place expanded its housing program to include transitional housing. Through an amazing donation by the Burgamy family, two houses are available to families or shared among three single women. In addition, Peace Place embarked on a huge project to create an apartment building to offer transitional housing to four women/families. Through the transitional housing program, Peace Place is able to offer safe housing, at a reduced rent, to our survivors for one year.
Peace Place offers an array of services beyond housing, including individual empowerment coaching, support groups, case management, outreach advocacy, legal advocacy, financial assistance, parenting programs, referrals to other service agencies, and more.
