About Peace at Home Family Shelter

Founded in 1977 by a group of community members, Peace at Home was the very first domestic violence shelter in the state of Arkansas. Our current programs include a 24-hour crisis hotline, 50-bed emergency shelter, legal services, support groups, counseling, and housing assistance programs. All services are confidential and free of charge for survivors of domestic violence and their children. Each year, Peace at Home supports over 700 individuals in the community as they seek safety and independence. In our 40-year history, our shelter and services have expanded, but our focus has remained on helping families leave domestic violence safely and successfully.
