PEP services are about empowering families to be life-long advocates for their children through education and skill building. PEP recognizes that parents are experts on their children; and must learn about disabilities, intervention needs, and how to develop a support system to meet those needs.
PEP is a family of families caring, supporting and guiding one another through the challenges of raising children. When family and friends don’t understand, parents always have someone to talk to at PEP. You are NOT ALONE! All of their staff has been impacted by disability in some way and know that navigating a challenging support system alone can be overwhelming.
Over the years, not only has PEP made a difference in the individual lives of families, PEP has also made a positive impact for child and family services through community collaboration, public awareness, partnering with professionals, and system advocacy efforts.
