Reeve Foundation Peer and Family Support Program

The PFSP will come to you

Schedule an in-service todayIn-services are a simple and easy way to make an organization more familiar with the PFSP and for you to help bring more peer mentoring to you community. You don't have to do anything but help us identify the hospital, rehab center, non-profit or other facility/institution and contact person we can speak with about the in-service.

A Reeve Foundation staff member will make a brief 20-30 minute power point presentation and the answer any audience questions. It is a great opportunity to provide more detail about the PFSP to a large group at once and for us to learn more about the hosting organization.

We encourage the host to invite as many people as they would like. We suggest the host invite your entire staff, clients, board members and even partnering organizations. Some of our hosts have held "brown bag lunch seminars" but also during other parts of the day. We can do the in-service at a time that works best for the host.

If you have a host(s) in mind please contact your respective RC with the pertinent info. While an introduction isn't required it would help if you would let your contact know we will be reaching out. A call to him or her or an email "introducing" the RC and your contact would help speed up the process. You are more than welcome to be a part of the initial call and even the presentation as a matter of fact we would love to have you more involved.
