Volunteer Stories

Vital to PEPS in every regard, volunteers are an extraordinary part of the PEPS community, and the reason PEPS' programs are so effective and meaningful.

98% of PEPS groups are facilitated by volunteers—mothers and fathers, people from the community who are deeply rooted in our community and passionate about supporting new parents. Over 2,400 families rely on PEPS volunteers each year.

The Birth and Baby Steps of PEPS

In 1983 new parents had little support in Seattle, and a small group of volunteers worked hard to change that.

Renewing a Commitment

Being a PEPS leader gives me the chance to wake up and shake off the day to day, and renew my commitment to myself and my kids to be the best mom I can.

A Rewarding Contribution

I think it makes such a big difference for parents to have a consistent, welcoming and supportive community during those first fragile months.

Helping Others Connect

Think about how much you benefited from your group, and the joy you can feel helping others finding those connections.

Three-time PEPS leader nudges new parents back to life

PEPS volunteers also help plan events, serve on our Board of Directors and pitch in around the office. Learn more about how you can join our enthusiastic team, plus the trainingleadership opportunities and benefits PEPS volunteers enjoy.
