PEP GraduationAll gifts are precious to PEP, but those that come from our participants and their families are especially meaningful. Each year, PEP receives thousands of dollars in donations from the men whose lives have directly benefited from PEP’s work. Their commitment to sustaining our mission is a true inspiration to our whole team.

Lately, we have also been humbled by the generosity of our participants’ families. One of our faithful monthly donors is a woman whose husband recently walked across the Class 17 graduation stage. When we thanked her for her gift, she replied:

“The PEP graduation was the most special, warm, thoughtful, genuine, love-filled, spirit-filled and emotional public gathering I have ever experienced. I felt the presence of God in that place & through the wonderful PEP family. My goodness, I could not get over how each person was treated so well and with so much integrity. I LOVED seeing men love and support each other with no egos in the way. I fought back happy, joyful, peaceful tears during the whole ceremony. I left feeling SO INSPIRED! PEP has not only changed my husband’s life but it has changed mine, as well. How can I ever say thank you enough!?”

Thank you to each of you for making such stories possible!

PEP Family Reunification Program

PEP’s Family Reunification Program works to maintain relationships between our participants and their loved ones throughout their incarceration.

We just received this great note sent from the wife of one of our current participants in Class 18. These are the kinds of comments that add fuel to our fire for growing the impact of PEP!

“I have one word that describes the PEP Program….A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! What a fantastic program you and your staff of volunteers are providing to help better these men’s lives and of course, mine and (my husband’s) life. This transformation is going to be life changing and for thatwe are so blessed and so thankful.Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
