Night Lights Program

Night Lights provides a much needed (and deserved) break for parents while providing a fun and safe social environment for their children who have special needs and their neuro-typical siblings. One Friday night a month at one of our three locations, trained and background checked volunteers provide an evening of respite care and fun through pre-planned activities including arts and crafts, movie time, sensory play, and music. During a Night Lights evening, each child has their own “buddy”. This one-on-one attention ensures safety and personal attention for the entire evening! These trained volunteers are supported by a nursing staff to ensure the safety and comfort of the children. Night Lights is held one Friday each month from 6:30pm – 10:00pm (date varies based on location). Each family does an interview with the Leadership Team prior to attending Night Lights to make sure their needs can be met.
