Renew Respite recently joined Volunteer Connect Douglas County and is actively posting volunteer opportunities. Renew Respite is a free, monthly, respite program for families with children with cognitive, communication, emotional, and physical challenges and their siblings.
One Friday night a month, trained volunteers provide an evening of care and fun through pre-planned activities for children with special needs and their siblings, ages 1 month to 12 years. During each Renew evening, each child, including siblings, has his or her own “Buddy.” This one-on-one attention ensures safety and personal attention for the entire evening. Trained volunteers are supported by
a nursing staff to ensure the safety and comfort of the children.
This program is only limited by the number of volunteers. Over 80 children are registered with several families waiting to join. The
program can usually manage about 30 kids each month. Please consider becoming a volunteer so more children can participate.
