Parent's Night Out
Friday, February 3, 2023
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.
