PEPS Single Parents

At PEPS, we have been hearing from single parents that they would appreciate and benefit from connecting with other families who share their identity as someone caring for a child on their own. And, we are thrilled to bring forth a pilot parent-peer support program for single parents and caregivers!

This is a free 6-week pilot program developed specifically for local parents and caregivers caring for children ages 0-3 years. This virtual peer-support series has been designed to assist parents in finding support and resources and building community. Each week, a discussion topic will be led by a facilitator who identifies as a single parent and is trained in inclusive facilitation. There will also be time set aside for socializing and connection.

We will be using this series to learn, adapt, and continuously enhance the curriculum. Be sure to participate in our brief surveys to share your feedback and help this program grow!


Program Details

Who: This series is open to those who identify as a single parent or caregiver. It is open to families living in our service region with kids aged 0-3 years old. Children are welcome!
