Peace House Community is closed Monday, June 5th through Friday, June 9th. We will re open on Monday, June 12rh.

 Peace House Community has long been known as
“a place to belong” in Minneapolis.

When our doors open, volunteers and staff welcome our community members who represent the diverse Twin Cities in which we minister. Many are homeless, live in subsidized housing or  sleep in shelters. Some suffer from addictions and/or mental illness. Daily attendance ranges from 60 to 80 persons. 

The goal of Peace House Community (PHC) is to offer a non-violent, welcoming and inclusive community for poor and marginalized women and men who are seeking companionship, safety from the streets and personal affirmation.  Peace House Community provides a platform for expressing beliefs, hurts, desperation, hopes and fears too long hidden in so many bruised and broken hearts. Community members are affirmed through mutual sharing, respectful listening and appreciation of each person’s value and worth. 

Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors, PHC offers:

  • A safe place for street people to find respite during the day

  • A light breakfast and a home-cooked lunch

  • A daily 45-minute meditation, an open dialogue in which community members are encouraged to participate in the topic selected for the day

  • Most importantly, a place where people are heard, a place where they can express their cares and concerns without being judged.
