About

Peace Together Project™ is an independent social endeavor to help piece together the lives of parents that lost a child. It was created to bring a day of peace to those parent survivors by remembering and honoring their child through helping others.

Founder, Louis LaBella, Sr started on this path upon adopting a project as a celebration to his son Louis, Jr’s 40th birthday who passed 5 years earlier.

On June 27, 2018, Louis Sr and son Chris adopted a day at Habitat for Humanity and provided minor repairs for senior  home owners as part of an aging-in-place program. The outcome of that day and the impact of that project was amazing.  read here

Louis, Sr. and Chris posted the project on Facebook and the response, support and feedback was more than they could have imagined.

What they weren’t expecting, was the outreach from the parents that also suffered the loss a child. Peace Together Project was started as a tribute honoring those parents for their encouragement of helping others find some peace as we bring community together.
