About Us

📷

PEERS is a program designed for Parents to offer Education, Empathy, Rapport and Support. All services at PEERS are for the prevention and intervention of child abuse and neglect. It is the goal of PEERS to help parents be the best they can be in their parenting role.

The PEERS program began in 1977, and was the only program of its kind in the state. Through the years, it has gained acceptance as a model program to help families under stress deal with the problems of parenting. In 1983, the program was recognized by the North Carolina Preventative Services Training Institute as one of the most cost effective and comprehensive family service programs in the state. The Governor's Award for Outstanding Volunteer Services was presented to the PEERS volunteers in 1987. In recent years, individual PEERS volunteers have received the Governor's Award and the JC Penney Golden Rule Awards for their service to the program. Volunteers are welcome at PEERS, we have an application and background ran on all volunteers.

Major funding comes from the United Way of Onslow County, Onslow County Partnership for Children (Smart Start), the City of Jacksonville, Onslow County Department of Social Services, the Department of Health and Human Services, and donations from individuals, churches, businesses, and civic groups. PEERS relies heavily on fundraisers to help with funding. PEERS host an Annual “Unmasking Family Violence Masquerade Ball” the last Friday of each January, an “Annual Cherish the Child Dinner and Auction” in April and the “Bavarian Lawn Party” in October.

Hi! Are you still doing child care?
If anyone has gently used or new pack n' plays you would like to donate, call me at PEERS, 910-333-9725. Thank you. PEERS is a 501c3 non-profit, we will complete a tax donation sheet. Thank you
Good idea PEERS 😊
Have you ever offered classes on parenting children with ADHD?
Although you do a great service, I am writing about a complaint the night of the masquerade ball. As a tenant in the Osprey Cove apts, the music from the two nights was very annoying. I, and other tenants, had to endure very loud music which kept us awake until you closed. I realize it gets pretty warm inside, but if, in the future, you could be more considerate. Noise travels very far at night. Thanks
Had a blast at Bingo today!
