Our mission: PEERS Family Development Center works collaboratively with families and the community for the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

Welcome to PEERS!

The PEERS Family Development Center is a volunteer and community supported program aimed at promoting the growth of families. PEERS offers parenting education classes on Monday through Thursday evenings free of charge. Child care is provided along with a meal for the families. In addition, PEERS has a program for teenage parents, ages 19 or younger, and free Drop-in Child Care available three mornings each week. The goal of PEERS is to teach constructive parenting skills, to encourage positive interaction between parents and their children, and to assist families in developing and carrying out a long range plan for the healthy development of their children.
