Spring Respite for families with special needs


Every quarter we provide Respite, a free event designed to be a night off for parents of children with special needs, and a night of fun for the kids! Our guests are each paired with a trained buddy for the evening who accompanies them throughout a night of fun activities. Parents and caregivers enjoy a little break knowing their children are in a safe environment and are having fun. While this is a free event, registration is required and it fills up fast! If you’d like to attend our next Respite event on Friday, May 3rd, sign up now with the ATTEND button below. Please note: each child needs a separate registration form. You will have the opportunity to put your name on a waiting list if our guest registration fills up during the April 8-11 registration period. We look forward to welcoming you at Respite at BPC!

Hosting Respite events takes a lot of coordination and a ton of volunteers. This is a great place to volunteer a few hours on a Friday night. The Respite team is a fun loving and welcoming group and we’d love to have you join us. Plus, you’ll experience first hand the impact you’re having as you bond with your buddy throughout the night. You’re also giving parents and caretakers a break, and for some of the families we serve, these quarterly Respite nights are the only nights off they get all year. It’s no surprise that every time we open registration for Respite it fills up in a few hours, and we always have people on a waiting list. When you sign up to serve you make it possible for us to open our waiting list to more guests. We can’t do this without you! If you’re interested in serving, click the SERVE button below.

Respite - it’s fun for everyone!
