Peace House is dedicated to ending family violence and abuse through education, outreach, support services, and safe housing. We rely heavily on volunteers and community support to meet our mission and keep the doors open.Our mission is simple—to provide victims of domestic violence the most comprehensive and compassionate services possible. Today, the shelter is a state-licensed facility with trained staff on-site, year-round. Our Peace House victim advocates answer calls for assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. In the years since it began as a safe haven for victims of domestic violence, Peace House has evolved. In collaboration with local partners, our program now includes community prevention and awareness programs. These programs are designed to reduce violence, abuse, and bullying in Summit and Wasatch County schools and communities. Since 2012, the Peace House team has been taking steps toward building a new community campus that will offer additional services to victims of domestic violence. Transitional housing will be part of the new campus, completing the continuum of care by giving survivors time to work towards complete independence. In 2016 Peace House opened a licensed clinical therapy office which provides counseling and case management services to victims living at home or at the shelter.
