Get the Word Out About PEPS
Quick & Easy Ways to Spread the Word About PEPS
When it comes to building awareness of the work we do at PEPS, there's no substitute for good old-fashioned word of mouth and personal communication. Here are a few powerful, easy to accomplish ways you can help.
79% of participants find out about PEPS from a friend. Some tell us that they were approached by strangers in the grocery store who said "You have to join PEPS. PEPS saved my life when I had a new baby!"
“One of the chief complaints new parents have in the transition to parenthood is the great isolation they feel from their social circle. For their relatives, baby is often a stranger. For their friends, baby is often a four-letter word…”
- Dr. John Medina, Brain Rules for Baby
"First-time parent groups provide lasting benefits not only for families, but also for society as a whole."
- U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health

Hand out PEPS Brochures
Your doctor, midwife, doula, social services provider, and others working with women and families who might be able to share information about PEPS with their colleagues and clients. Contact Cari Morales to request brochures.
Post PEPS Flyers
Post flyers on community bulletin boards at local gathering places, such as coffee shops, community centers, child care providers, schools and family-friendly businesses. Use your imagination; these organizations will welcome the opportunity to provide information about PEPS to their clients and participants.
POST YOUR POINT OF VIEW: Write a about PEPS on your local mom listserv, Facebook, LinkedIn Group or personal blog.
ORGANIZE A PEPS PARTY: Host a PEPS get-together for your extended PEPS network. Invite members of your PEPS group(s), other friends who have participated with PEPS, and even folks who may be entirely new to PEPS. Set a goal to raise $150 to provide a scholarship for one PEPS family - that's $10 each if 15 people attend.
GET CREATIVE: We always welcome new ideas and are happy to work with you to develop ways engaging to introduce PEPS in your community.
