PACEM is a grassroots organization that coordinates space and volunteers to provide shelter for individuals in our community who are homeless. Our name, PACEM, is an acronym for People and Congregations Engaged in Ministry. Pacem is also a Latin word meaning peace.
More than 80 faith congregations and community groups and 3,000 volunteers in the Charlottesville area come together each winter to address the need for shelter by opening their doors, serving evening meals, giving financially, and/or providing companionship. The PACEM Family continues to expand since the shelters opened in 2004.
