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.
About Peace House
In 1992, a local woman lost her life at the hands of her estranged husband in a Park City parking lot. This event energized community leaders to actively address domestic violence. A Domestic Peace Task Force was formed and in 1995 the Peace House shelter was built. For the first few years, Peace House was operated entirely by volunteers. Today, thanks to donations and grants, we retain a full-time professional staff. However, they continue to rely on generous volunteers to provide the best services to victims of domestic violence 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, their 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.
Mobile first for necessity
Because Peace House is an abuse help service, the site may be accessed in emergencies and needs to be optimized on mobile. We put a big call to action right at the top so it's very easy to call their helpline quickly.
