About Rockford Family Peace Center

The Family Peace Center (FPC), located at 315 North Main Street, opened July 2020 and provides services to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, elder abuse, and trafficking. It is a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary service center, focusing on reducing the number of times survivors tell their story and the number of places they must go for help.  Both public and private partner agencies assign staff on a full-time or part-time basis to provide services from this one location. One location is key, as many victims fall through the cracks due to not having the resources, support, and freedom to get to multiple locations.

Opening during the pandemic, the FPC has had to face its share of obstacles but persevered and has already served 530 survivors in our community. Let’s make this holiday season brighter by providing the employees and survivors hope and encouragement through our support! This year we will be collecting new items from FPC’s wish list and monetary donations to help carry out their vision.
