Peace Neighborhood Center

Peace Family,

Our response to the Covid-19 national emergency is at this time focused on mitigating the effects this will have on our families in these three major areas:

  1. Food insecurity
  2. Academic support
  3. Lost wages and emergency assistance.

If you are inclined to help, donations made through the PayPal link below will go to help assist our families with food insecurity, continued academic support during the school shut down and, perhaps most importantly, to aid those families facing lost wages due to childcare and other factors to avoid possible eviction or utility shutoff with emergency funds provided through our case management.

 

UPDATE – 3-18-20

It saddens us to announce a change to our normal operating hours.  As a social service agency, Peace takes great pride in being on the front lines of any crisis that impacts the well-being of our families and the community at large.   However, in order to do our best to keep our staff and volunteers as safe as possible and in order to abide by the recommended guidelines of social distancing to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we are going to be making the following changes to our operating hours:

Thursday 3-19-20: 10:00am – 2:00pm

Friday 3-20-20: 9:00am – 2:00pm (Fresh Produce Distribution from 10:00am – 12:00pm, Lunch distribution from 12:00pm until 1:30pm)

 

As we move into next week and beyond, we will be changing our weekly schedule to the following until further notice:

Monday: Closed, staff will work from home

Tuesday: 10:00am – 2:00pm (Lunch Distribution for families from 12:00pm to 1:30pm)

Wednesday: Closed, staff will work from home

Thursday: Closed, staff will work from home

Friday: 9:00am – 2:00pm (Fresh Produce Distribution from 10:00am – 12:00pm, Lunch distribution from 12:00pm until 1:30pm)

 

Our Friday Food Distribution of fresh breads and produce in partnership with Food Gatherers will run as normal during this time period. This is a first-come, first-serve distribution that runs from 10:00am-12:00pm every Friday. If you are a family in need, please make sure you are utilizing this resource.

To all of our Peace Family members who attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings scheduled at our center, at this time we will be suspending meetings until further notice. Please reach out to your sponsors and other members of the recovery community if you are in need.  A number of online recovery groups are forming. Thank you for your understanding.

Individual staff members may be reached via email (first initial and last name @peaceneighborhoodcenter.org)

Case managers may be reached on their cell phones.

Any other emergency should be directed to 734-795-5422 and the staff member on-call will follow-up as soon as possible.

As we have stated previously, we are suspending our normal after school programs for the next three weeks while Ann Arbor Public Schools is closed. As of this time, we anticipate resuming our programs as normal on Monday, April 6th. We will continue to monitor the situation over the coming weeks and will send any updates as necessary. Thank you all for your support of the children and families we serve. We wish all of you and your loved ones continued health and safety.

Sincerely,

Bonnie Billups, Jr.
Executive Director

The Peace Center is like a home away from home. It really is special, both in the summer and during after school programs. This place feels like it is our roots. Even as you grow, you still are with your roots.
