​​​Why PCK matters

PCK began when Marcy Rogers discovered that children had no where to go after school.  What began as a group of just a few is now a full scale program serving an average of 90 children a day, sometimes more.  90% of the children who attend are from low income or working poor families.

In Payson there is no "Y" program, nor any Boys and Girls Club.  There is only PCK as a year round program at no cost to those who attend.  

PCK is truly a place for children to belong.  MORE


Who we serve

Many children are from families that face a variety of challenges:  single parent homes, a parent in prison, living with relatives, living in the domestic violence shelter, or homelessness to name a few.


This makes the services PCK provides even more crucial.  PCK serves as a place where children develop friendships, feel safe, encounter adults who nurture and care about them and engage in interesting and fun activities.  It is a program that helps children meet expectations of treating others kindly and striving to make good decisions.  



Thank YOU to all our sponsors and supporters!
