Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Helping service members and veterans who are questioning their role in the military or suffering from the consequences of that service; educating the public about the hidden, invisible, and human costs of war, especially on veterans and their families; and promoting peace to end war and all the destruction it causes, in terms of human suffering, environmental harm, and costs drained from human services. Our G.I. Rights Hotline takes in over 300 calls each month; we counsel 100+ victims of domestic violence, PTSD, and moral injury in the military; both services are free and confidential. In the end, we help service members, veterans, and their families who have no place else to go. We literally save lives.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Working towards a peaceable kingdom free of war; resisting the evils, conditions, and culture of war; grounded in Friends and other like-minded principles, methods, and goals; providing support and care for military and their families, including but not limited to clearness and support on conscientious objection, domestic violence, PTSD, denied benefits; and actively coordinating with and leading other peace groups through education, direct action, and peaceful witness.

We are part of the nation wide G.I. Rights Hotline Network, comprising over a third of its calls. We started a Domestic Violence, PTSD, and Moral Injury Counseling program. We lecture, publish, and distribute a quarter newsletter to keep our constituents and the wider public aware of the human costs of war. Our location in Fayetteville, NC, home of Ft. Bragg, the largest military base in the nation, keeps us mindful military issues and the problems service members face, many of which are hidden from the civilian public.

Our staff comprise one full-time Executive Director, two part time GI Rights Hotline Counselors, a part time Domestic Violence counselor, and a full time administrative office assistant. Our board is quite active fulfilling many duties and needs on a volunteer basis that otherwise would fall of staff. We maintain close relationships with our member Friends Monthly and yearly meetings as well other peace minded faith communities. We are active in local Fayetteville organizations, including community behavioral support agencies, NOW (National Organization for Women), and other groups that work for peace and justice.

We have not ended war, but we're working on it. It will take a long time but Quaker House has been in operation for over 45 years, and we plan to continue serving and education our country until war, like slavery, is ended in this country.
