What You Need to Know. . . 

What is a Respite Night? Parents will drop off their special needs child or adult, along with sibling(s), while background-checked volunteers care for them. We offer a variety of activities for everyone to enjoy.  Our goal is to allow parents to enjoy a night out.

Pre-registration is required. Parents need to complete a registration form for each individual with special needs (and any siblings) that will be attending Respite Night.

What will they do? We set up our church building to meet the needs of everyone. There will be music, recreation, crafts, and a movie. The entire evening is structured so that every person in attendance can find something they enjoy.

How does check-in work? Check-In begins at 5 pm and runs until 6pm with a special welcome from our volunteers. Please enter into the Gym through our Oakland Avenue parking lot. This is the same entrance you will use when returning to pick up your children.  You may pick up your children at any time but no later than 9:00pm.

Is dinner provided? We will provide a pizza dinner along with Chips, Goldfish crackers, lemonade and water.  You are also welcome to send dinner with your child(ren). Dinner will be served beginning at 5:30pm.

The schedule for the evening? We will eat dinner and enjoy a sing-along. Following dinner we will rotate through music, crafts, and recreation and then close out the night with a movie.
