Respite is vital for the health and wellbeing of families of children dealing with disability. Parents & guardians need to rest and recharge. We schedule Break Time respite sessions on various Friday nights and Saturday afternoons throughout the year. All the children are under direct supervision of a registered nurse, experienced behavior specialist, and other professional staff. Each child receives one-on-one care and attention from motivated local university students: UCCS, the Air Force Academy, and PPCC. All take pride in volunteering their time and efforts to make every Break Time a fun, safe experience. Professional entertainers are hired for all Colorado Springs sessions to assist our volunteers and pass the time with smiles and special projects (see www.misskiddee.com). Special guests and groups are also invited to support and perform when possible. Check out these Facebook links: Sarah Nolan (719) 338-1718 for more information about upcoming Break Time events in Colorado Springs. Days and times vary with facility and volunteer availability. Bethan also provides advice and notifications about other respite resources and fun events. Enrollment Packets for Colorado Springs sessions for El Paso, Teller, and Park county participants:
