Circle of Hope Society


Since the early 1970’s Peaceful Paths has been providing a safe and confidential space for victims of domestic violence to flee. Since our founding, we have worked to find innovative ways to provide safety and hope. There is never a cost to clients who come through our doors. Now is your chance to get involved to help advance our mission.

The Circle of Hope Society is  a multi-year pledge program aimed at driving forward our mission and vision for ending intimate partner violence and serving local survivors. Join the Circle of Hope Society by pledging an unrestricted annual gift of $1,000 or more for each of the next 5 years. Your gift will be recognized on our Circle of Hope Wall at the Dutton-Schilling Emergency Shelter.
