Volunteers needed to help watch and care for special needs children and their siblings so their parents can enjoy an evening of rest and relaxation.

Northside has many different kids that attend church with special needs. We would like to have a Respite Date Night for these families. The kids that will be attending will be kids with special needs and their siblings. We are going to have games of all kinds for the kids to play. Because of allergies, the kids will have had dinner before they arrived. We will have trained staff here as well as volunteers. 

 

about this mission:

A Respite Night is an evening of rest for parents of special needs children.

A smile and the love of Jesus...

notes:

As a volunteer, you will arrive at 5:45p and go through a short training. The kids will begin to arrive at 6:30p and will stay until 8:30p.

If available, we may ask a few volunteers to stay and help clean up after the event.
