Peacemakers is a Christian community development organization serving the under-resourced area of South Rocky Mount in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Our mission is to empower members of the community with the knowledge and skills necessary to lead successful and sustainable lives. In coordinating community outreach, Peacemakers believes wholeheartedly in the importance of collaboration, working with other community-based and faith-based organizations to further the impact of our services.
We strive to tangibly demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ in such a way that it results ultimately in the complete transformation of the community and its people. We are a Christian organization; however, we never deny services to anyone on the basis of religion or any other demographic criteria, and never require anyone to engage in religious activities in order to receive services.
