The Peer Empowering and Advocacy Support Program (PEAS)

PEAS program is ARK’s initiative that provides ongoing peer support to the grandmother-led families to help them cope. A PEA advocates for the needs of grandchildren, assists and supports other elderly caretakers, and trains community volunteers who support grandma families. Community volunteers receive more than 20-hour training session on selected topics relative to the needs of elderly parenting. PEAS supports, encourages and empowers our grandmothers to comfortably meet the needs of our most vulnerable children.
