We are HERE for YOU! Peace Place offers the Gift of Time today, and hope for a better tomorrow for all children with special needs. We believe every child is a joy, and every parent needs time for self-care. Please help us to serve vulnerable families with the gift of TIME!
In 2019, we intend to grow, so we can serve more families. There are over 1200 children in Cascade County who qualify for Peace Place, but we can only serve about 25 through our successful Ages 0 - 5 morning program.
HELP US GROW!
Peace Place is Non-profit of the Night on July 28 - buy tickets from us and we get $4 for our important mission - providing hope for families with children with special needs!
Thank you for your interest in Peace Place – your support of our mission means so much to us! YOU can provide at-risk caregivers with the gift of TIME – time to relax, time to reflect, time that helps them to return to their duties with fresh energy. In 2018, we were able to grow our programs to be open five days a week, and run a pilot program for ages six to ten, thanks to donors like YOU!
Staff costs are our largest and most important investment – our wonderful caregivers are the heart and soul of Peace Place. We invest 80% of our income in salaries and training from experts like Erin Faulkner, a licensed behavior analyst, and Ashley Williams, an occupational therapist. We are blessed to have help from volunteers from the nursing programs at both MSU and MSU-GFC. Peace Place is not just a "daycare." It's a wonderful oasis for special families.
The stress of caring for a child with special health needs presents parents with a difficult conundrum. How can you take the time for yourself, much less your spouse, when your child’s needs take every waking moment? This is why we do what we do! Parents of children with special needs divorce at much higher rates than the general population. Often, they spend thousands of dollars in medical co-pays that typical families do not have to pay. They deserve our support!
Your gift to Peace Place shows these parents that they are not forgotten, that someone cares about their needs and concerns. Play is good for the heart and the soul – and the smiles on the faces of the children you will be helping are a joy we love to share!
Your gift to Peace Place will ensure that we can spread more joy to more families!
