A victim of domestic violence and sexual assault is often afraid, embarrassed or ashamed to ask for help, or doesn't know whom to trust. If you or someone you know needs assistance, contact PEACE.
At PEACE for Families we truly do care about you and your family. We understand what you are going through. We won't judge you. We won't make you go to the police. And if the abuser is someone you know, we won’t force you to leave that person if it doesn’t feel right for you.
PEACE for Families will give you assistance and encouragement. We provide comprehensive services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Placer County, including the cities of Auburn, Lincoln, Rocklin and Roseville. These services include a safe house for battered women and their children, hospital accompaniment for rape survivors, in-person crisis intervention, assistance in obtaining emergency food, clothing, transportation, individual and group counseling, and legal advocacy and accompaniment.
The most important thing to remember is it's not your fault. Regardless of what you were wearing, whether or not you knew the person, if drugs or alcohol were involved or if you are heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, or transgender, you are a victim, you didn’t want this to happen.
If you need someone you can trust, count on PEACE for Families.
PEACE for Families began as a rape crisis line. While we still maintain a crisis line, PEACE has evolved into a place where victims of rape, sexual assault and domestic violence can find shelter in our safe house, seek counseling, therapy, support, and intervention free of charge.
