On Giving Tuesday, please think of The Ferns as you decide which deserving non-profit to support. Our matching donation opportunity continues today, and through the end of the year. Please consider donating today - your gift matched dollar-for-dollar. To donate, please go to https://bit.ly/3G2i4lo, and select the option for your donation to go to The Ferns Peer Respite.
The Ferns Peer Respite is a community for learning, healing and growing, recognizing that distress is a common human experience. Our peer run respite provides a welcoming space for people who feel overwhelmed, to have time, space and relationships that support their self-determination, healing and growth, recognizing that people are the experts on themselves.
We believe that peer respite can be at the forefront of creating more spaces for how people interact with each other when they’re struggling, spaces that “really honor humanity, honor the connections that we have, honor the fact that what we experience is really human experience, and we need to be supported by each other in that, and let that be the center of how we organize our help to each other. Help that's helpful, and at the end of the day, is powerful and in each other's life.”
– Mark Boorse, The Ferns Peer Respite Council Member
