Saving lives and creating change since 1974.

Peaceful Paths is a certified domestic violence shelter serving Alachua, Bradford, and Union county. From the beginning, we have worked to empower thousands of survivors and their families through emergency safe shelter and housing, economic education workshops, child & youth programs, safety planning, counseling, and much more.

 

Our work is possible because of supporters like you.

Through sustained giving, your overall impact on survivors and their families can be significant for an affordable monthly donation of your choice.
