About the Peer Respite Essential Features Survey
Every two years beginning in 2010, Live & Learn staff and partners have conducted a Peer Respites Essential Features (PREF) survey. All peer respites in the U.S. are invited to participate. Since the first survey in 2010, the number has grown substantially, as reflected in our Peer Respite Directory.
This effort creates nationwide, longitudinal data that documents trends in organizational development and program policy so that communities and states can learn from each other as the number of peer respites grows nationwide. The reports from this survey provide aggregated nationwide information to be used for planning and sustaining peer respites.
