Peace Neighborhood Center
Our response to the Covid-19 national emergency is focused on mitigating the effects this will have on our families in these three major areas:
- Food insecurity
- Academic support
- 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 on Summer Youth Services 2020
Due to Michigan school closures and the uncertainty that lies ahead with COVID-19, Peace Neighborhood is re-evaluating what youth services will be offered this summer. It is unlikely that we will run our typical 6-week camp.
As we decide what youth programs will look like this summer, Peace Neighborhood’s priorities will be: (1) ensuring safety for youth, families, and staff and (2) providing academic support for youth. We will provide updates about summer programs through email and text. Click the link below for more information and to download an application.

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.Lauren Comer
