Mission

Our mission is to empower victims of domestic violence to survive and thrive by nurturing their self-determination and courage; and to promote healthy relationships and compassionate communities through education, outreach, and advocacy.

We believe that Northwest Arkansas can be a national model for a community where every person who seeks safety and freedom from family violence has the support and resources they need to obtain and maintain violence-free homes and heal from the devastating effects of domestic violence.

History

The Peace at Home Family Shelter was founded in 1977 and was the first shelter in Arkansas to provide shelter and supportive services for victims of domestic violence. We started in a small house in Fayetteville and are now providing services in a Donald W. Reynolds building.
