The vision of PEP is to create a supportive network of forward thinking, compassionate professionals with knowledge in a variety of topics pertinent to the special needs community in the San Francisco Bay Area. We offer disabled individuals and their families tools of empowerment to maximize potential and improve quality of life. Network membership includes those who are community-minded and have a positive framework and attitude toward disability.

Our goal is to provide events where our professionals are approachable in an informal and social setting. We also offer topic-specific lectures for parents and professionals.

Through our sponsored events, we are not only educating parents on specific topics, but creating a supportive community for parents to build meaningful relationships.



Through our contacts in the community and our experiences working with a variety of professionals in the field, we have personally selected individuals that we trust and that embody our vision. PEP is a group of well-respected professionals willing to volunteer their time to offer advice and education to parents. Whether you just need advice or want to utilize one of our professional’s services, please know you are in good hands.


PEP has a strong commitment to giving back to the community we serve. Through event and membership fees, we fund local programs that provide critical services to the special needs community.
