Since 1977 the Peace at Home Domestic Violence Shelter has made a difference in the lives of families in crisis here in Northwest Arkansas

About the Show:

On this episode of the podcast, we learn about the first and oldest Domestic Violence Shelter in Arkansas. Peace at Home has been running since 1977 and has made a difference in the lives of countless families struggling with domestic abuse.  

Peace at Home has grown to meet the needs of both Benton and Washington County families. They offer several services, including a 24/7 crisis hotline – number below, emergency shelter, housing programs and assistance, legal services, counseling services, a thrift store, community referrals, and a pet sanctuary.  

Peace at Home has left no stone unturned, and their marketing and communication coordinator, Bethany Clark, has outlined nicely in this episode why it matters and how, if you live locally, you can help.

There is so much in this episode to unwrap, and October happens to be Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It’s probably best to listen to the whole episode, and if you know or suspect someone may be dealing with Domestic Violence in their home, share this podcast with them.  

***As always, if you’re in an emergency, CALL 911 NOW! If you or someone you love need(s) help escaping violence or creating a safety plan, call Peace at Home today at (479) 442-9811.***
