PEACE Community Resource Center
The PEACE Center was created out of a vision to have a destination for our county’s residents when they are in need of basic resources and assistance. The Center’s purpose is to meet these needs through existing and future services such as: food pantry, financial education, career counseling, legal information, MSI (Medical Services Initiative) application processing, support groups, orphan care, and adoption support.
The Food Pantry provides fresh and non-perishable grocery items to families in the community. Pick ups are available once every 30 days and walk ins are welcome on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesdays from 1 to 6 p.m.
