The Peace House Mission:

To improve access to care and provide hope and support to patients and their families while facing the challenges of illness, injury or disability during treatment at Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital (RCP).

The Peace House Vision:

Our goal is to provide a low-cost or free stay to families while their loved ones are receiving rehabilitation services at RCP. The Peace House held its grand opening March 21 at its 1425 Augusta St. location. Click here to see photos.

Persons with neurological injuries or illness can stay for weeks in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital and then often require intensive treatment for up to six hours a day, two-to-three days a week. The specialized programs in both the inpatient and outpatient areas at RCP draw patients and families from all over S.C.  Traveling long distances and high fuel costs often prevent patients and families from full participation in rehabilitation, which is critical to their loved one’s success.

The Peace House will be able to house up to six families in a space that offers both privacy as well as common spaces for interaction and support from other families facing similar challenges.

Along with providing these families with a safe, comfortable place to stay, The Peace House  will also allow RCP the privilege of serving our injured returning service members from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thousands of injured troops returning from these wars suffer traumatic brain injuries, and RCP has the only accredited brain injury rehabilitation program in S.C.
