Parenting is hard, arguably the hardest job you will ever have.  Parenting is even harder when families are not given the support and resources they need.  A family's ability to provide stable, nurturing relationships and environments that children need to thrive can be often out of your control. You are a great parent, we are here to support you and bring PEACE!

The PEACE (Preventing the Effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences) Clinical Program is designed to help families combat the impacts of early adversity and reduce the likelihood of children developing toxic stress, a root cause of adult mental health conditions. Through various therapeutic services, PEACE helps strengthen caregiver-child relationships, while also helping children heal from stressful experiences and improve self-control and confidence in school, community, and social settings.

If you are caring for a child under age 18 in St. Louis City, St. Louis County or St. Charles County who has had a stressful experience and/or struggles with managing their emotions and behaviors, then the following services can help:
