Our Mission

Peace Neighborhood Center’s mission is to provide programs for children, families, and individuals who are affected by social and economic problems. Peace helps people discover options, enhance skills, and make choices that lead to self-sufficiency and positive community involvement. Since 1971, we have helped more than 16,000 people in Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County through a wide range of comprehensive programs designed to promote education, health, well-being and fiscal independence.

Testimonials

David had a tough childhood, moving from place to place and never finding a stable environment where he could feel comfortable. Since coming to Peace Neighborhood Center’s Alternatives for Youth program and becoming a part of the Rising Sons group, David has developed strong interpersonal relationships with positive adult male role models—something he has never had before. We have witnessed a metamorphosis over the last few years. Once a problem student, his behavior in school has improved so much that he recently won the President’s award at his middle school.
