Partners for Peace
- Nonprofit Organizations/Associations
- Social Services
Partners for Peace has two important goals:
We serve people affected by domestic abuse
We work to end personal, institutional, and cultural violence
Partners for Peace was formed from the collaborative merger of Spruce Run and Womancare on October 1, 2013. Spruce Run was the first domestic violence project in Maine and just the third in the country when we incorporated in 1973. Womancare was incorporated in the State of Maine in 1979. Since then, we’ve grown to an agency with a paid staff of over 20 and comprehensive services for people affected by abuse. We are grateful for the goodwill and contributions of the people of Penobscot and Piscataquis Counties and beyond who help fund our work and who serve as volunteers in countless capacities.
Our services are free and are designed to help each individual think through and understand their options, make informed decisions, and achieve and maintain safety, autonomy, and self-sufficiency.
