The Work

Peace House Community provides a refuge from the chaos and dehumanization of life on the streets. When community members and volunteers enter the building, they know that they will connect with others through services and conversations that affirm our common humanity.

The Result

PHC allows individuals to fulfill their social, emotional, spiritual, and physical needs. Members in our community know they are not alone in their situation and their worth is not determined by their economic situation.

Get Involved

Peace House Community welcomes all compassionate individuals to join together to provide a place to belong to all who need it.

Peace House Community grieves the inequalities and discrimination that have divided our community into separate and unequal groups. We stand beside, mourn with, and demand justice for any and all community members who have been systematically profiled, killed, and treated unjustly throughout history. 

Peace House Community is excited to partner with Loaves and Fishes!
Loaves and Fishes will serve meals out of PHC’s building each weekday from 5:00 – 6:00 pm. This partnership will expand both agencies’ impact in the Phillips neighborhood and will meet more community needs. PHC has wanted to get more use out of our building on behalf of our neighbors, and now that goal is becoming a reality.
