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 2018, Peaceful Paths was able to provide over 22,600 nights of shelter and our 24/7 hotline averaged over 230 calls per month. Our combined services provided more than 33,000 client contacts through our wide range of comprehensive services. Services are available to victims and survivors in Alachua, Bradford and Union counties.
In addition to providing for immediate survivor needs, our Prevention and Education programs work with local youth to promote relationships free of violence and offer resources to young people who have experienced Intimate Partner Violence. Last year, programming was offered to over 7,800 students in our community.
All proceeds from Guest Chef will be used to continue offering high quality and compassionate services to survivors.
