Called to Peace Ministries

Called to Peace Ministries (CTPM) is a nondenominational, nonprofit, 501 (c)(3) ministry dedicated to offering hope and healing to victims of domestic violence, emotionally destructive relationships, and sexual assault. Our twofold mission is: 1) to provide practical assistance and counsel to individuals affected by domestic abuse and  2) to educate organizations and helpers to better respond to these crises through education and mentoring.  

Practical Assistance
Individuals affected by domestic abuse may experience many challenges, including: severe emotional distress and confusion, lack of effective counseling, and basic necessities, such as housing, employment, childcare and transportation.  Many choose to stay in abusive situations simply because of these limitations. Therefore, CTPM seeks to connect individuals with resources to bridge the gap from crisis to normalcy. We offer support groups and counseling to our clients. 

Education 
Without proper knowledge and training those who desire to help victims of domestic violence may unwittingly make matters worse. Therefore, CTPM offers educational seminars and training to help groups and organizations by giving them the knowledge necessary to help. As a ministry, we are particularly interested in coming along side churches to help them better understand how to deal with this difficult issue. Statistics show that domestic violence is no less prevalent in the church than in society at large, and that Christian victims tend to stay in dangerous situations an average of 3 years longer. In addition, a majority of Christian victims reach out to their faith leaders first, only to find counsel that treats abuse as a marital issue (which it isn't).  Without knowledge, people perish (Hos. 4:6), and CTPM exists to help change that. We offer semi-annual community-wide workshops on domestic violence in the Raleigh, NC area, but we are also willing to travel to your church or small group.

Our  confidential services are offered to all regardless of  race, color, religion (creed), gender, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, or sexual orientation. You do not have to share our beliefs to receive our services, and we will not pressure you to accept them.  In addition to our general advocacy services, CTPM offers enhanced services for elderly, deaf and hard of hearing, and rural victims. Please contact us for more information.
