Thanks to the generous support of the Horizons Foundation all gifts made to PEPS during GiveBIG (April 27-May 10 midnight) will have double the impact! The Horizons Foundation matches each gift 1:1 up to our goal of $11,000. THANK YOU!
For more than 34 years, PEPS has been helping new parents connect, learn and grow. PEPS empowers families to build connection and community with other new parents in their own neighborhoods. Becoming a parent is a life-changing event and can be accompanied by vulnerability and feelings of isolation. Through weekly peer-support parenting groups, PEPS provides opportunities for social connection, skill building, shared learning, and supportive resources when families need it the most. Through PEPS and its use of the research-based Strengthening Families Framework as the backbone of our programming, parents of infants and very young children come together to share in the joys and challenges of parenting, learn about their child's development, and form caring communities. This year more than 250 PEPS Groups will support 3,000+ new parents in developing healthy attachment with their babies, gaining confidence in their own abilities, and finding support and connection among their peers.
