I just wanted to call and say thank you to PEP. I just finished going through a crisis and without the support of my Family Specialist and the Satellite Office I would not be here.
I just wanted to say that I LOVE what the newsletter has become. Everyone at NVPEP should be proud! I just got it in the mail – I cant say enough about it.
Nevada PEP is the house that rocks this town. It's a place where everyone is welcome and no one leaves without a wealth of knowledge and a feeling of well being.
I am so happy you are involved with the family. Mom really needs your support, and it seems that you work great with mom. It is nice to have you at the CFT's. Thank you.
I got a lot of information from the PBI class. It made me make the decision to be a better teacher and parent.
A Mom in labor at the hospital called her Family Navigator for a PEP talk. Mom said she was calling all of her family member, and wanted to include Nevada PEP!
NV PEP helps me remember what is really important.
I am in complete wonder and amazement- not only did you take my call today but you actually cared enough to help me get my child in school. You are angels on earth @ PEP.
You don't know how much we appreciate you. You're the first good thing that's happen to us in 3 weeks. I'm so glad that person gave us your number on a piece of paper. You are truly an answer to our prayers.
I learned from you guys what to do and what the law is so now, I Win! Thank you for helping me and I also thank the Psychologist who referred me to Nevada PEP!
Nevada PEP is a nonprofit organization that provides information, services and training to Nevada families of children with disabilities.
How Nevada PEP Can Help:
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 our 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.
