Founded in 1983, the Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS) is a community-based parenting support program that works to reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect and build family wellness by creating social connections, fostering parental resilience, modeling secure attachment to babies, teaching about child development and parenting, and connecting families to community resources. PEPS helps parents develop healthy, functioning families.  We are a leader in the field of new-parent support, and remain one of just a few organizations offering preventative support programs for new parents in our region.

The PEPS mission is to enable parents of infants and young children to build communities that empower them to meet the challenges of parenting through mutual support and sharing of information.   We fulfill our mission by offering parent support programs centered around the research-based Strengthening Families™ Framework (http://strengtheningfamilies.net), which outlines five protective factors of family wellness that work to increase attachment, foster healthy brain development and lay the foundation for successful early learning.

PEPS currently serves over 2,300 families, or more than 3,300 parents, annually in King and Snohomish Counties through several programs, all of which involve forming groups of parents that meet regularly (PEPS is not a drop-in program), are facilitated, and deliver our curriculum.

Because we are frequently contacted by organizations -- locally and nationally -- seeking to replicate our model, we recently launched the PEPS Network to facilitate partnerships with select social service agencies that serve new parents and have expertise working with diverse, disadvantaged communities.
