As a community-supported nonprofit organization, Peace House relies on the goodwill and active involvement by community members for its continued success. We recognize the importance of the public trust and hold to the highest standards of transparency and accountability for how we conduct ourselves in the community.
A Board of Directors, consisting of accomplished community members, provides oversight of the Executive Director, who administers the programs within an established budget.
Peace House also receives feedback and advice from members of the Advisory Council, composed of distinguished professionals and leaders in the business and nonprofit communities.
The Board and Executive Director operate in accordance with the ByLaws.
All Peace House programs are provided free of charge to those who need them; the work is financed by a combination of grants, donations and fundraising events in the community.
Peace House also files many reports required by both regulatory agencies and grant funding sources and undergoes periodic operational audits as a licensed domestic violence shelter.
