Buddy Break provides respite care to parents of special needs children (up to age 18) on the third Saturday each month (9:30 am – 1:00 pm) at Christ Baptist. We will meet again on September 23.
Buddy Break is a free kids/respite program where children with special needs (VIP kids) make new friends, play fun games, enjoy crafts, stories, music activities, and more! Siblings have fun, too! Meanwhile, their caregivers get a break from their ongoing care-giving responsibilities for three hours. Each VIP kid is paired one-on-one with a screened volunteer “Buddy” to participate in that day’s activities, and is paired with the same “Buddy” each month. Want to help? Training is provided, and a background check is required.
