I’m so happy to greet you this month! I’m the Deputy Director at PEPS, which means I oversee the behind the scenes things that keep our organization running, like Technology, Finance, HR, Communications and our facilities too. We've been talking about new beginnings at PEPS this year, and a new beginning I'm excited to share with you is that we have two new office locations. PEPS HQ is at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford, and North Seattle has been home to PEPS for more than 35 years, but we've long since served parents outside the neighborhood. These days you can sign up for a PEPS Group from Renton to Lynnwood, Seattle to Snoqualmie and everywhere in between! Over the last few years we've been working to provide more outward-facing connection between PEPS Staff and the community. We have been hosting leader trainings and events in community spaces on the Eastside, South Seattle and South Snohomish County. We recognized that we also need more space for our growing staff that is closer to home - so we can hire and work with folks from all the communities we're serving.
We're thrilled that we've rented space in South Seattle at
2200 Rainer Avenue South
, where we'll host leader trainings, events and PEPS Groups and have space for our south-end employees to work. We're also thrilled to be close neighbors with our friends at
. Thanks to a partnership with
, we now have a dedicated desk at their Bellevue location for Eastside staff to work out of, and we'll be using their beautiful conference rooms for our Eastside Leader Trainings.
ParentTrust and The Riveter are both incredible partners and both spaces are accessible and centrally located in the communities we serve. We hope you get a chance to visit us soon!
Enjoy all the news and resources in this newsletter, and here’s to another new beginning.
