The WESTMINSTER PEACE PRIZE

The Westminster Peace Prize recognizes an individual or group whose efforts have made an important contribution to peace and reconciliation in our community or world.  This award is presented each October, and is  funded by our congregational portion (25%) of the annual Peace and Global Witness Offering

The 2022 recipient of the Westminster Peace Prize was Housing Resources, Inc.   HRI is provides vital leadership in the Kalamazoo county community to address housing needs, housing insecurity, and homelessness. HRI helps people to find and keep safe, affordable, permanent housing; locates emergency housing for those who are homeless; and assists with other housing-related needs.  The work of HRI helps to break down barriers in our community that keep people from finding homes and make it difficult for them to enjoy peace, safety, and and stability within our  community.
