You can help change the face of disability ministry. We are a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to providing support for families (without regard to race, religion or ethnicity) raising children who have special needs through short-term overnight care and activities allowing respite for their families. We want to change the face of disability ministry in America so that each family of a special child has respite within reach and access to a church that embraces them.
Why? Respite: Restored and Better Equipped
The parents, caregivers and siblings of these special children are extraordinary human beings. They face the same day-to-day struggles as most with the added concern, dedication, stress and exhaustion that comes with raising a child with special needs.
Overnight respite allows parents to:
-Take time away and focus on their marriages.
-Devote more time to typical siblings.
-Continue their education to improve their family’s quality of life.
-Get ahead on work.
-Catch up with old friends.
-Best of all, let go and release any guilt or fear, because they know their child is happy and safe.
