Special Parent's Afternoon Out Fall 2019

Northern New Jersey Special Parent's Afternoon Out - Fall 2019
Saturday, October 12th, 2019 (Noon - 3pm)

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 an afternoon or night out.  In the spirit of meeting this need, in 2009, my wife Denise and I founded Special-Parents.org (www.special-parents.org ) .  

Once again, in 2019, we will host our 20th and 21st Special Needs Carnival and Respite events!  Special-Parents.org  ( www.special-parents.org) and The Church of the Hills (www.thechurchofthehills.com ) have partnered with local area restaurants to sponsor a  complimentary “Special Parent’s Night (Dinner) Out” event on Saturday,  May 18th, 2019  and  a "Special Parent's Afternoon (Lunch) Out" event on Saturday, October 12th,  2019 while their children are cared for and entertained by loving and qualified volunteers.

Buy a meal!!  - $50 treats one set of parents! Over 300 guest families and over 600 guest children are expected to attend our 2019 events. To learn more or volunteer visit  www.special-parents.org
