The Goal of the Maui Family Peace Center (Maui FPC) is to bring peace to Hawaii's families by offering safety, support, and empowerment to victims/survivors and their children exposed to domestic violence, and accountability to offenders. Maui FPC has been conducting domestic violence services on Maui since 1994.

Maui FPC provides many community services to help stop domestic violence including:

Puuhonua “Safe Haven” Services
