"Elaine has worked, and is still working, very hard to build an amazing place for parents to bring their children with special needs. Being a parent is hard, but adding other challenges on top of everyday life can be such a struggle. Elaine knows this firsthand, and so I believe she was meant to put help in place for others; those that maybe haven’t realized that they can trust other people with their kids or that they can and need to take for themselves to recharge. What a great blessing Elaine has created for our community! I’m so thankful to be involved and to help keep her dream alive and flourishing!

"Peace place is wonderful for children and adults. We no longer have to worry about childcare with someone that doesn't understand our daughter's needs."
~From the mother of a young girl with sensory disorder
"Peace place is an amazing place. I'm very thankful that we have something like this in our community. I would recommend Peace Place to any parent who needs a break and won't trust just anyone to watch their little blessing."
~From the mother of a young boy with Down Syndrome
"My daughter loves Peace Place when she goes. The staff are GREAT with the kids. She loves the dress-up clothes and playing with other children. So thank you to everyone for working hard for the Peace Place program!"

“I had been praying for something like this to come along for [my daughter]… I had been to another daycare and they were really nice, but I couldn’t shake the anxious feeling I had about leaving my daughter there. As soon as I walked in the door [at Peace Place], I felt peaceful and comfortable leaving her here.”
