Mission Statement

Pause is an initiative for special needs families committed to providing consistent support that is unique to the family’s needs while also partnering with them to grow their natural support system. Pause offers families of children with physical, mental, developmental, medical, behavioral and/or learning challenges, access to a broad range of support options maximizing the use of community resources and family support networks. Together we will take one step at a time.... •rest•support•connect•fun•


Pause hosts Parent's Night Out for caretakers of children with special needs. We desire to give parents a night to unwind, relax and decompress while we provide a fun, safe, engaging night for their kids.

Come be a 1:1 buddy for a child with special needs. We'll provide you with a research backed training to give you all the tools you need to have a great night with the child you are partnered with.

Or, serve as a station volunteer for our greeting area, registration table, craft, food or game station. Join us as we help families get a break!

Would you recommend Pause/Butler County Family and Children First Council?

by Isabella J. (June 10, 2017)
This organization is fantastic. As a volunteer, I was assigned to a child with special needs, and while caring for that child, I felt as though I was connecting with them. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes children.
