Nevada P E P Inc

A nonprofit organization

$8,571 raised by 84 donors

Over twenty years ago, we started with a dream, a hope and a vision of what is right and possible for our children. Our mission began with families sitting around a kitchen table looking into the future; seeing their youngsters growing, thriving and experiencing life’s offerings. Yet, we recognized that between dream and reality there stood a lifetime of work. So began Nevada PEP, a homegrown nonprofit organization, offering Education, Empowerment, and Encouragement to families of children with disabilities. Over 17,000 individuals statewide received PEP services.

During these years, not only has PEP made a difference in the lives of families, it has also made a difference in the community, being the founder of the renowned Baldy Bash a premier fundraiser for over eight years, and the prestigious Art Show in Reno for over six years Nevada PEP continues to bring Public Awareness to the community. Recognizing October as National Bullying Awareness month PEP partnered with Tivoli Village and IGT in Reno  to bring the community its first statewide Run Walk & Roll Against Bullying 5k, 1 mile Event. Nevada PEP has adopted a Disability Awareness program “Include Me” promotes positive inclusion and bullying prevention for all children through the art of puppetry. Our Hand in Hand Together We Can program acknowledges people in the community who go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of children with disabilities.

Nevada PEP is dedicated to increasing the opportunities for home, community, and school success for children with disabilities, including those who are at risk or who have serious emotional disturbances. There are many different configurations of our families; aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends.  We have natural, foster, and adoptive parents all seeking help.  No family is ever turned away!

Nevada PEP is a statewide organization serving families with children having an array of special needs from birth to 26 and their service providers.  We offer a variety of training workshops on special education and disability related topics.  Information on training opportunities and registration is available on-line at or through the Nevada PEP office at (702) 388-8899.  The Las Vegas office on 7211 W. Charleston blvd., welcomes visitors to its resource library filled with handouts, books, and electronic media.  Families requiring a higher level of support can request individual assistance. Our Reno office is located at 4600 Kietzke Lane, Ste. I-202 89502. Toll-Free 800-216-5188.
