Our Lady of  Peace Home has served the Twin Cities since Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, 1941 to care for terminal cancer patients who are unable to afford care in other nursing home facilities.  This home is one of seven such homes in the United States.  These homes are entirely supported by voluntary contributions of goods, money, time, service and effort.  The purpose and primary goal is to relieve pain, provide comfort, and console the patient and his/her family during the final stages of illness and life.
