Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
As parents of a special needs child we have learned over the years of the absolute necessity to take time out of our busy schedules to 'recharge our batteries’ and invest quality time into our marriage relationship so that we can maintain a strong foundation for meeting the physical and emotional needs of our special needs child. All too often it becomes difficult or next to impossible for parents of special needs children to take these needed breaks due to a lack of qualified child care and/or the disposable income to treat themselves to a night out. In the spirit of meeting this need, my wife Denise and I founded Special-Parents.org.
Special-Parents.org works with co-sponsoring organizations, who in turn partner with volunteers, donors and restaurants in their area, to offer an afternoon or evening of respite for the parents and/or caregivers of special needs children. The events include a complimentary "Special Parents" night (dinner) or afternoon (lunch) out for the parents or caregivers while their special needs child and siblings are cared for and entertained for 2 to 4 hours, by loving and qualified volunteers in a carnival-like atmosphere.
