Northern New Jersey Special Parent's Afternoon Out - Fall 2018
Saturday, October 13th, 2018 (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 2018 we will host our 17th, 18th and 19th Special Needs respite events!  Special-Parents.org (  www.special-parents.org), The Pennington AG Church ( www.penningtonag.com) and The Church of the Hills ( www.thechurchofthehills.com ) have partnered with local area restaurants to sponsor  complimentary “Special Parent’s Night (Dinner) Out” events on Saturday, February 24th,  2018 (Central NJ) , May 19th, 2018 (Northern NJ),  and October 13th, 2018 (Northern NJ) while their children are cared for and entertained by loving and qualified volunteers.

Buy a lunch!!  - $40 treats one set of parents! Over 300 guest families and over 500 guest children are expected to attend our 2018 events. To learn more or volunteer visit   www.special-parents.org
