Advocacy

At their core, Peace Neighborhood Center Crisis Needs and Advocacy Programs aim to not only assist families in a crisis, but to help prevent families from returning to the same situations that lead to crisis. Services include cash assistance, budgeting, planning, referrals and advocacy with medical, legal, and housing problems related to basic needs like food, shelter, and clothing. Whether it is preventing a family’s heat from being shut off, helping a parent navigate the financial aid system so their child can go to college, or simply driving a client to a job interview, Peace staff members find creative ways to provide services when families need it most.
