We Exist to
Save Lives &
At Peaceful Paths, our mission is to Save Lives and Create Change. Peaceful Paths provides a wide range of free and confidential programs including emergency shelter, supportive housing, crisis helpline, counseling and support groups for adults, teens, and children, Economic Empowerment Programs, Legal services, and professional education and training.
In 2020, Peaceful Paths provided over 42,000 services to survivors of domestics abuse and their families. Despite the hurdles COVID-19 created for us, we were still able to serve over 1,000 survivors across Alachua, Bradford, and Union counties.
One of the most essential and immediate needs for a survivor is safe housing. Our campus offers both emergency shelter as well as supportive housing on and off campus. Last year alone, we arranged almost 21,000 nights of safe housing on campus and 14,000 nights of safe nights in the community. We sheltered over 350 survivors along with 14 of their pets on our campus and gave 96 survivors permanent housing solutions.
Our housing assistance is only one of the thousands of services we provide for survivors and their families. Our staff and volunteers have been dedicated to empowering clients with award-winning support.
All proceeds from Guest Chef will be used to continue offering high quality and compassionate services to survivors.
