Mission is to Empower
Programs for Exceptional People is a non-profit whose mission is to empower adults with special needs by promoting independence and offering opportunities for social growth and maturity. PEP is the only organization serving adults with special needs in Southern Beaufort County.
Founded in 1995 to Help Special Needs Adults
The Programs for Exceptional People
organization was founded in 1995 by six families with special needs adults and has grown to serve around 50 current members. About half of PEP’s costs are paid by waivers from the SC Department of Disabilities and Special Needs
with the balance met through fund-raising events, donations and grants. After high school (age 21), there are limited avenues for special needs adults. Many families are responsible for full-time supervision and do not get any needed respite. PEP, to a special needs adult and their family, means an active life in the community – working, volunteering, recreational events and a caring family of friends.
PEP Offers a Fulfilling Work and Social Life
Programs for Exceptional People Needs Your Help
The Programs for Exceptional People organization and all their volunteers offer a fulfilling life to their members and families. Please considering attending their wonderful Gala, volunteering to help, or donating
to their worthy program.
