We’ve been helping people affected by domestic violence in Penobscot and Piscataquis Counties find safety for nearly 50 years. When you support Partners for Peace, you help create space for survivors of domestic violence to find safety and start their healing. According to one survivor: “When I called the helpline and poured my heart out, there was no judgment, just acceptance. It was so giving to have that space and I know that’s when my healing started.” None of it is possible without you. Today, we ask you to consider how you can continue or deepen your support: donate, share your story, or apply to volunteer or work at Partners for Peace.
Over the past year we’ve prioritized offering flexibility to our staff, volunteers, and partners in order to address the ever-changing and complex needs of our whole community. The results are in: In fiscal year 2022, we served 1,692 survivors (over 200 more folx than last year) and answered 6,476 calls for help.
Help survivors find safety (whatever that looks like for them) year-round. Mail us a check to PO Box, 653, Bangor, ME 04402 or donate securely online below (Paypal accepted). Consider becoming a Perennial Partner and make your gift recur monthly, quarterly or annually. As a thank you, we’ll send you a limited edition “Be A Light” magnet.
We are in search of business sponsors for our 50th Anniversary event on October 13, 2023 at the Cross Insurance Center. Learn more on our event sponsor page!
