Findlay continues support for Nevada PEP

Every parent wants their child to be happy, healthy and successful, so the idea of children being mistreated or bullied is heartbreaking.

Tragically, studies show that kids with disabilities are two to three times more likely to be bullied than their nondisabled peers. That is why Nevada PEP has made it their mission to stop bullying.

Over the past 28 years, Nevada PEP has been empowering families to be lifelong advocates for their children through education and skill building. With Nevada PEP’s support, parents have the tools they need to advocate for their child’s success in school and in the community. All services are provided free of charge.

Here are some comments from parents who have been served by Nevada PEP:

“I wanted to thank Nevada PEP for the ongoing support for my daughter. Not only is my daughter not getting bullied any more, without your help she wouldn’t have her 504 plan and safety plan. She is now getting good grades and is doing well. Thank you so much.”

“My son has now graduated from high school and is employed! Nevada PEP played a big role in his success. The work you all do is amazing! Thank you for everything you taught me along the way.”

“We recognize that bullying is a problem, especially within school settings,” Findlay CFO Tyler Corder said. “Nevada PEP does a great job at preventing bullying within our local schools. It’s something we’re proud to support.”

Findlay Automotive has been supporting Nevada PEP for nearly 10 years.

“With the generous support of Findlay Automotive Group, Nevada PEP has been able to increase and promote more resources about bullying, including a Take Steps to Stop Bullying training to parents, schools, and community partners on the bullying laws, how to report a bullying incident, and the investigation and safety process in Nevada,” said Stephanie Vrsnik, community development director for Nevada PEP.

Every October, Nevada PEP hosts the I Care We Care campaign encouraging the community to send in messages of kindness and hope and displays these caring messages on the I Care We Care page.

The I Care We Care team delivers activity books and bookmarks to elementary schools that teach children about bullying prevention and the importance of kindness. PEP also provides resources and information to school administrators and parents about bullying prevention.
