Mission Statement:
Helping people in the community realize their potential for becoming self-sufficient

History:
Incorporated in 1968, PEACE, Inc. is a non-profit community-based organization with the mission of helping people in the community realize their potential for becoming self-sufficient. PEACE, Inc. believes in the strength of the human spirit and is dedicated to changing lives by teaching people how to help themselves and support those around them. To this end, PEACE, Inc. provides a continuum of services for the entire family from infants to the elderly. The majority of individuals we serve have incomes placing them at or below the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

PEACE, Inc. is Onondaga County’s federally designated Community Action Agency. As part of the national network of Community Action Agencies, PEACE, Inc. seeks to help people become more self-sufficient by strengthening families, improving the conditions in which people live, encouraging people to own a stake in their own community, and developing partnerships with other organizations, businesses, and individuals to support these efforts.

PEACE, Inc. receives funding for its programs and services through a variety of federal, state, and local government sources, as well as from many foundations and corporations.

PEACE, Inc. offers programming and training to provide our families with the necessary tools and skills to move from poverty to self-sufficiency.
