At the Peace at Home Family Shelter, we are committed to ENDING family violence in Northwest Arkansas.
In the year 2012:
- We assisted 774 brave women and children escaping the family violence in their lives.
- We provided survivors 6,947 safe nights of emergency shelter.
- We answered 866 crisis calls to individuals in need.
- We provided 8,062 hours of individual advocacy helping survivors find meaningful employment, affordable housing, and emotional support.
Our work is making a difference in the lives of Northwest Arkansas every day. 83.4% of the women who stayed in Shelter with us last year chose NOT to return to their abuser. They are instead choosing to change their lives and their children’s lives for good.
*The statistics in our 2012 Newsletter differ slightly because they were pulled a few days before the end of the year. These are the final 2012 numbers.
