Spread the Word

If you know someone who is expecting a baby, or just welcomed one to their family, encourage them to participate in PEP. Our outreach is most successful through positive recommendations!

Become a Volunteer

PEP is staffed by trained volunteers who are the best experts of parenting: they are parents themselves! If your PEP experience was positive and you want to continue growing with the organization, or if your workload has shifted since having a baby, or if you are passionate about helping local families, we encourage you to become a volunteer. Our current volunteers will help prepare you through a training session that covers all of the services that PEP provides. Whether your passion is public speaking, or you’re better behind the scenes, we’d love to utilize your talents.
