“PeaceWorks, Inc: Mountain Peace Shelter is honored to be a recipient of a grant from the Kush Desai Foundation. We are forever grateful for organizations and people like you who value and support social justice programs. PeaceWorks is a domestic violence shelter located in Park and Jefferson Counties, serving victims of domestic violence, stalking and intimate partner violence from our local communities, the Front Range, and throughout Colorado.

PeaceWorks is a safe place providing peace of mind to a person, their dependent children and pets, who have suffered abuse for potentially years, or even decades. Your generous grant has provided a survivor with their first 4.5 days of emergency shelter. For survivors there are so many traumas. These initial days are used to allow their body to relax and get rejuvenating sleep. Within this time frame, survivors begin working with advocates on the logistics of moving forward, out of crisis - towards self-sufficiency and well being.

  • Lori Cuno, Executive Director, PeaceWorks, Inc: Mountain Peace Shelter
