What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Emergency Shelter

Our shelter is staffed by trained advocates that can provide emotional support through this tough time; crisis counseling, information, referrals and safety support along with functional items needed for daily life are available for all residents throughout the entire shelter stay. We provide services to all victims of intimate partner violence regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, gender identity, mental or physical ability, sexual orientation, citizenship, immigration status, marital status or language spoken. While the shelter structure has space limitations, Peaceful Paths will make reasonable accommodations to ensure appropriate services to all eligible individuals and families seeking support.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our vision is to end domestic violence by: Providing a safe, supportive environment, Instilling confidence and self-esteem, Supplying information and resources, Teaching parents and children non-violent alternatives, Encouraging people to realize personal goals, Acting as agents of social change, Offering education and training, Working as a team, Building a cooperative network, and Promoting diversity and equality.

Peaceful Paths provides a wide range of services including emergency shelter, 24-hour helpline, victim advocacy, children’s programming, education and training, crisis counseling and support groups, community awareness and intervention, legal assistance, and violence prevention programs. Peaceful Paths is a member of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV).

Peaceful Paths has been providing proven support to survivors for over 40 years. Our community partnerships and networks ensure survivors have access to all the support avenues they may need in their journey. Through grant funding and private donations, we are able to continue this work through our extensive program resources.

Our annual report highlights the number of survivors served, helpline calls answered, families moved to personal housing and a variety of other benchmarks. Survivors self report their increased safety and knowledge of resources.

We will continue to serve survivors in our service area as well as providing educational and prevention resources to children and teens to address future relationships. We will continue to grow our Outreach services in our community and beyond.
