PACEM is an inter-faith group of people and congregations united to ensure a pillow for every head. We are first and most importantly a group of people who share a belief that God calls us to love our neighbors. Because of this faith we share what we have with those who are less fortunate. We know that area shelters are often full to capacity and are sometimes forced to turn deserving people away. Our vision is a community where everyone has a safe and comfortable place to sleep. It is our prayer that people and congregations of all faiths will hear the call to house and feed the poor. Participating congregations host a rotating shelter for a week at a time. PACEM opened its doors November 15, 2004 and immediately began serving some of our neediest neighbors.
