“Our organization has benefited considerably from being part of the PEPS Network. The initial support in getting our organization started was invaluable, as is continued access to the research-based curriculum. Most recently, the monthly meetings with the other Network Partners have been very useful in helping us all navigate the changes wrought by the pandemic that is affecting us all.” Partners in Parenting (PIP), Austin, TX
