Upcoming Events

Parent's Night Out

2021-Postponed due to COVID-19 

(Stay tuned for updates)

Parents' Night Out is a FREE respite program open to children with disabilities and their siblings.  The program is held from 6:00 - 9:00 PM on the first Friday of the month. Parents can enjoy a break and have a night to be "normal" while leaving their children in the care of responsible volunteers.  Children not only enjoy activities such as open gym play, crafts, music, and special entertainment, but they have the undivided attention of a volunteer who is dedicated to making sure they have fun.

"Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion. We are all in this life together."  -Linda Thompson
