Peace Neighborhood Center

Peace Neighborhood Center’s mission is to provide programs for children, families, and individuals who are affected by social and economic problems. They help people discover options, enhance skills, and make choices that lead to self-sufficiency and positive community involvement. PNC is located on N. Maple Road and serves many of our neighbors throughout Washtenaw County.

One client has this to say: “I am so in awe of Peace’s ability to help people help themselves…Without them, I don’t think my family would have achieved our goals. They have helped develop my children into leaders while supporting me to become a better parent. I have never been around a group of people more genuine or concerned for my well-being. It is a blessing to be involved with Peace.”
