PEEA is a nonprofit organization established in 2004 and hosts free year-round education, recreation and trauma programs for families living with autism/unique abilities.
All PEEA programs offer diversity and inclusion experiences in a safe, nurturing and judgement free environment.
PEEA understands the importance of community. We are committed to servicing our families and striving to meet their needs through our community initiatives by way of outreach.
PEEA hosts year-round trauma workshops, food, clothing, and essential distributions, parent support trainings, and resource events that'll help break the barriers to social determinants of mental health as well as providing beneficial resources that people can use to build independence, confidence and raise awareness.
PEEA recognizes the negative effect and impact trauma has on everyone regardless of their background. While we all have different experiences and outcomes, learning about trauma is an essential component of healing, recovery, and resilience.
Our Trauma program is a hands-on experience that will provide the basics on trauma, how to interact with autistic individuals as well as those we encounter in the community. Starting this Spring, PEEA will host interactive ongoing trauma workshops. Participants will learn the meaning of trauma, how to identify signs and symptoms, what trauma looks and feels like, how to care for themselves through self-care and coping, and when and where to seek help.
