This morning I had an intake meeting for the kids to participate in a respite program at a local church. The church's pastor has a daughter with special needs. That inspired him to create a ministry to reach out to families in the community who also have children with special needs. Their program, Access Ministry, is nationally recognized and they are a leader in getting other churches to create similar programs. It is truly incredible!! The offer respite for families 2 Friday nights and 2 Saturdays each month. The volunteers are all background checked and trained and there is a nurse on duty at all times. There are sensory rooms, moon bounces, a playground, gym, movie area, craft area, play rooms, wagons & scooters, and so much more. I was blown away!! The kids will have a wonderful time playing and Matt & I can actually have a date night once a month. Sign me up!!!
