PEPC, Inc.

Goal: $25,000.00

Specific Need


Funds raised through Match Day will be used for general operating funds, including but not limited to, maintaining the Community Resource Assistant position.  This position is the intake and assessment piece of PEPC and is a critical piece of the framework in the way we serve families.  In 2018, the Community Resource Assistant had the first contact with 270 walk-in clients, completed an intake, provided a basic assessment of the families' needs, and referred them to which of PEPC's programs or those within the community that could best serve their most pressing needs.  In addition, our building is in desperate need of roof repairs. We have done our research and found the most cost effective, yet reliable option, with a 10-year guarantee. The total repair is estimated to cost $25,000. We have already secured a significant portion of that amount for the project, but we aren’t quite there yet. Please help us to reach our goal so that we may continue utilizing Lincoln Center as a family resource and education center for Marshall and Washington County families and children! 




Pony Express Partnership for Children focuses on the betterment of children and families' lives through a collaborative effort of multiple agencies.  Through education, support, resource and referral, and health education, partnering agencies work together to best serve families' needs from birth throughout adulthood.  


PEPC was established in 2014 and has since served more than 2200 people in Marshall County and the surrounding areas.  In September 2018 through grants, we expanded west to include Washington County in our immediate service area. Our organization is located in the old Lincoln School, now known as Lincoln Center.  Other service agencies within our building include Parents as Teachers, Marshall County Lifelong Learning (GED Program), Pony Express Infant Toddler Services (Tiny K), KVC Family Preservation and Permanency, NEK-CAP, Inc. Early Head Start and Community Services, and Salvation Army. Also located on our campus are the NEK-CAP, Inc. Head Start preschool, the Department for Children and Families (formerly SRS), Pawnee Mental Health Services, and the Marshall County Helping Hands Food Pantry.  PEPC's services include offering Love and Logic parenting classes six times per year by partnering with Parents as Teachers and NEK-CAP, Inc. We also offer the PEPC Pantry.  This pantry offers household and toiletry items to compliment what families may receive at the food pantry such as laundry detergent, shampoo, deodorant, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, tooth paste, etc.  The pantry also offers diapers as so many families struggle with this expense.  


The other major program operated by PEPC is the Family Support Program.  This program serves families who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness by providing rental assistance on a step-down scale and case management over a 12-month period.  This program has helped provide safe and stable housing for 55 families in Marshall and Washington Counties over the past three years, including 120 children.  Within case management, all areas are touched upon that may be barriers in the family's ability to maintain stable housing: employment, education, transportation, health, social-emotional wellbeing, finances, parenting, etc.  In addition, all children ages 0-5 are screened using common measure tools provided by the Kansas Children's Cabinet and Trust Fund for early intervention.  Any concerns are noted and referred to partner agencies for further evaluation and services.  PEPC is able to utilize the other resouces in our building and on our campus to help families in the Family Support Program to be successful, and sometimes, people just need to have someone who believes in them.
