Words of Thank You

"Peer Plus is an inspiration and example for ALL to follow. Peer Plus has been there when my family would not even be there! Your organization is definitely God sent. Continue to spread the Love, Care, Encouragement and Guidance that is so needed in this world in this day and time."

"On behalf of the Newbon family, I want to thank Peer plus for everything they did through our time of bereavement. Losing my mother was one of the hardest things that I’ve ever had to deal with, and this is something I pray that I can get through for the rest of my life. Thanks to Peer Plus for everything that they have done   It really helped us get through these hard times. Even when my mother was alive, Peer Plus was able to help us make sure that she had the best Christmas and the best Thanksgiving. I more than appreciate this program, and I'm very happy to call Peer Plus my family!  Thank you again, and please know that we more than appreciate you.
