What Do We Provide?
Peaceful Living is a faith-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We believe that every individual has the right to belong in their community and we try our hardest to help them achieve that all-important sense of community and participation.
Our trained staff helps the individuals we serve by working with them on life skills, giving them a safe caring environment to live in, helping them kick back and relax, enabling them to get out in the community and creating a valued and sincere friendship that can otherwise be difficult to create.

What Do We Believe?
Peaceful Living’s mission is to create belonging for persons with disabilities within a faith-based community, and the driving force behind that mission is our belonging model. We believe that true belonging is composed of 4 important parts. The first part is companionship in the form of a sincere relationship built upon mutual trust and admiration. Membership in a welcoming community gives individuals an opportunity to thrive. A sincere appreciation for the enthusiasms individuals we serve offer to their community help them feel that they’re contributing in their own special way. And finally Peaceful Living believes in caring for the whole individual by helping them live a life balanced in body, mind and spirit.
