Mayumi House, Mayumi means 'Enduring Peace'. Mayumi House will be a safe haven DV emergency shelter, but more than that...a home that receives those who seek safety and where those who enter the doors can connect/reconnect with the ways that speaks to the heritage and souls of their people.
Mayumi House will be a place where your culture and heritage are considered, where options and choices fit the daily oppression you and your family must navigate. It will be a place where the TRUTH can be told, heard, received, and served. It will be a place of safety, support, understanding, and compassion lead the way.
Mayumi House is named in honor of Elaine Mayumi Whitefeather, a 40+ years Domestic Violence advocate and veteran of the DV Movement. Elaine's passionate leadership led the way for this culturally responsive oppression lens advocacy that is now the mission of A Community For Peace (ACFP).
Truth, Peace, and Compassion reflect the diversity of meaning for "Mayumi" in many languages and cultures. It is that spirit that we welcome to a new safe haven.
