Pause for Parents, Play for Kids, Inc. provides rest, support, connection and fun to families with differing needs to build resilience and increase hope. We support families who have children (ages 0-24) with developmental disabilities, mental/behavioral health challenges (including complex trauma), chronic medical conditions, children with IEPs/504s and those in foster or kinship care. By giving families space to share their story and use their voice, Pause serves as the bridge to stronger relationships, better outcomes and more inclusive communities.
WHAT ARE OUR STRATEGIES?
Rest so caregivers can re-charge and move from surviving to thriving.
Support by assessing our families’ unique needs and connecting them to resources and each other.
Connection & Fun with in-person and virtual events that build family relationships and connections with other Pause families.
Train & Equip volunteers and community partners to understand the challenges of the families we serve and maximize their resources, talents and gifts to find the role that best fits them.
We provide these supports through the use of short term respite events. These events give caretakers a few hours to recharge while we have fun and pour into their kids. All events are pre-planned and intentionally designed to be trauma informed and resiliency based. As a volunteer, you simply get to show up and connect with our sweet kids who are excited to spend time with you! Join our growing team of 500 volunteers as we work to bring change to over a thousand lives in the greater Cincinnati area.
