"A Place to Belong"

Who doesn’t need “a place to belong?” But not everyone has that place. There are many women and men in the Twin Cities metropolitan area who have lost the support of family and friends and have few places to turn. It was this realization that inspired Rose Tillemans, a sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet, to establish Peace House Community in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis in 1985.

The goal of Peace House Community 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.
