Your financial donation supports new parents by giving them the resources to early parent support through scholarships, volunteer training and publicity.
"PEPS cannot connect, educate and empower without those of us who have already benefited from its collective wisdom. Each of us needs to step up and volunteer our time, energy and money to make sure we pay forward the gift that was given to us, so that the stay at home moms, stay at home dads and all those moms and dads who are working can find their peer group and be empowered to raise their children into men and women that we wish them to be." ~ Leo Novsky, PEPS alumn
The Difference You Make
“My PEPS Experience was life changing. It helped me become the parent I wanted to be.”
Judy, PEPS participant
Step Up for Families Today And Help Parents Become The Parents They Want To Be!
Your Support Helps PEPS:
- Provide scholarships so that all families who are interested in PEPS can do so. PEPS never turns anyone away from participating in our programs due to financial reasons.
- Recruit and train facilitators so that every PEPS Group has the support they need. PEPS believes the key of a successful PEPS Group is the group facilitator and that’s why we invest in quality training, supervision, evaluation and support for the Group leaders.
- Get the word out and expand our programs to families who don’t know about PEPS. In order to increase the number of parents served through our programs, we are investing in strategic marketing efforts.
