Noblesville First has developed an EXCITING & FREE opportunity for parents and caregivers of children (ages 5-18) with mild to moderate disabilities and limited behavior and medical concerns. Drop your child and his/her siblings off at the church with educated and trained volunteers and enjoy an evening of relaxation!
The goal of respite nights is to improve the overall health and psychological well-being of parents and caregivers, while simultaneously providing the children with disabilities an opportunity to have fun and improve their social skills through interaction with similar peers.
In addition, we are hoping to learn and grow through this opportunity so that we can better serve ALL individuals in the future, including our friends with more severe disabilities.
Participants and volunteers must register for this event by November 25 using the link provided below.
Want to volunteer?
We are also seeking volunteers to assist with these events. Experience is not required, but all volunteers must attend a mandatory volunteer training and education session on Tuesday, November 30, 6:30-8PM in The Vine (Door 5).
Volunteers younger than 18 years of age require parental consent on the registration form.
Volunteers will receive education and training related to various disabilities and conditions, behavior management strategies, safety protocol, and communication techniques to ensure the safety of all individuals involved during the respite nights. Health and safety are our top priority.
