Our Mission

Our mission is to remove the obstacles to forgiveness and promote healing both for victims and perpetrators of injustice. By creating venues for constructive dialogue, we will build ties of understanding and cooperation, leading to reconciliation.


What We Do

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM

Our Journey to Freedom program is designed to provide practical and emotional support and guidance that refugees need to work through issues related to resettlement and develop solutions for overcoming difficulties in their new lives. By far, the most overwhelming obstacles to overcome are culture shock and language barriers. Learn more.

Mentorship

The Peace Center for Forgiveness and Reconciliation believes in developing young people in the core areas of acceptance, tolerance, motivation, and inspiration.  In pursuit of this goal, the Center facilitates the multiple mentoring programs. Volunteer to be a mentor.

Peace Academy

Our Peace Academy program is designed to teach young people the art of peacemaking and how to resolve conflict.  Youth are able to build relationships with adult mentors and participate in team activities that promote cooperation. Learn more.

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”
