GiveBIG Donor FAQ

Each year PEPS connects thousands of parents in facilitated peer support groups.

We are wholeheartedly committed to supporting parents adjusting to their roles by connecting them with other parents going through similar experiences at the same time in their parenting stage.

"Honestly, I always thought, the hardest part was giving birth. Nobody tells you that the hardest part begins afterwards...." ~ Gergana, PEPS Group participant

We believe in the power of connection, the power of listening to each other, and the immense relief in knowing we have the support of a caring and passionate community.

Watch Gergana telling her story of becoming a parent and the significance of being in community.

Bottom line? Families need connection to be healthy and to thrive. They need to know they are not alone. 

And many parents need access to basic resources, childcare, stable housing, healthcare, and mental health services — which is why we are grateful to be in community with our partner organizations who work to meet these needs.

During this year's GiveBIG — a statewide campaign created to increase giving in our community — we encourage you to invest in parents and families by giving to PEPS, as well as one (or more!) of our partners.

Together, we can create a better world for our children. And for us.
