Help us bless and serve our community during May 7th & 8th SOARly Needed R&R events. May's R&R will be hosted at Abundant Life Church in Lee's Summit, MO (304 SW Persels Rd, Lee's Summit, MO 64081). We will serve 10 families at each time slot to comply with COVID protocols. Volunteers are needed during the following time slots:
Friday, May 7th from 6:30-9 pm
Saturday, May 8th from 9:30 am-12 pm
Saturday, May 8th from 2-4:30 pm
Saturday, May 8th from 6-8:30 pm
We need volunteers to serve in a variety of roles including being a one-on-one buddy to an individual with special needs, siblings group leader, crafts, sensory, medical, security, and more. We also need volunteers to help us set up and tear down. Volunteers must be in the 6th grade and older to volunteer on their own. If they are younger than in the 6th grade we encourage them to serve with their family. A meal will be provided for volunteers who are able to serve for more than one time slot.
Background Check: If you are 18 or older (by R&R) and have not completed a background check with us within the past 3 years, you must submit a background check at least 1 week in advance of the event. A background check application from SOAR Special Needs will be sent to you after you register.
COVID-19: We want to ensure the health and safety of everyone with the ongoing concerns of COVID-19. We will be doing temperature checks for all staff, volunteers, and participants. Staff and volunteers are required to wear a mask and participants are highly encouraged to. We will have extensive cleaning in between each respite event. If you are able to stay a little later than our volunteer time slot we would appreciate your help cleaning the facility for the next event.

NONE OF THESE DAYS WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP
Assist and empower families with special needs to SOAR in their local and faith communities with key resources, impactful activities, and thriving environments so that they can live beautiful lives.
SOAR's core values come down to the three main questions every family with special needs asks: Will my children ever be able to provide for themself? Who will take care of my child after I'm gone? Who will take care of me? These are important questions which deserve a committed organization for solving them. This is why SOAR exists - to provide a powerful destiny for individuals and families with special needs.
We offer FREE SOARly Needed R&R (Respite) nights, both in-person and virtual, for our families with individuals with special needs. During our in person R&R nights, we also have a simultaneous sibling program for siblings from birth to 13-year-old. Each evening has a special theme. These respite nights require volunteers on a regular basis in order to be successful.
We also offer a week long summer day camp for over 100 individuals with special needs. SOAR Camp is not possible without the help of many volunteers throughout the week.
