Thank you!

the project

Last summer, Peace House became an entirely community-owned property. In that process, we received an interest free personal loan from a dear friend of Peace House in order to complete the cost of purchasing the home. When the COVID Pandemic hit the public health crisis that accompanied it hit those already living on the margins the hardest. Knowing that those are the very folks most needing Peace House our kind friend let us put loan repayment on hold so we could focus our resources on getting basic needs such as food and shelter to those needing it. Now we’d like to pay them back! We’d also like to ensure that the house has an adequate savings account for ongoing, needed repairs to keep us up and running for a long time to come.

the steps

  • Pay off the loan
  • Start a savings account
  • Continue to provide resources to our community

why we're doing it

Mutual aid is how we love each other, it’s how we survive, and it’s how we will continue to ensure our communities thrive. Peace House is a hub of mutual aid and support in our community. We want our work to be able to continue far into the future as we continue to collectively build a world around caring for each other.

Thank you!

A quick note here to say thank you so much to all those who have donated so far! We are 1/3 of the way to our goal! We at Peace House are so grateful to be part of such an amazing community. I've been thinking a lot about community; what it means and how to build and nurture community in a pandemic that is keeping us physically apart from one another.  Lots to muse on, lots i'm not sure.... but this, this I am sure of ; I am grateful for all of you ! Fierce Love and Hard-nosed hope, Sheri
