A Place to Serve the Community
Mount Olive's respite events help to strengthen families with children who have special needs by giving the parents or caregivers a much-needed break on a regular basis. Volunteers help care for children during respite events.
Respite events provide an afternoon of fun activities. One or two volunteers are matched with a child to provide one-on-one quality care.
- Mount Olive Respites are held 2-3 times a year on Saturdays 1-5PM.
- Respite is for children with special needs ages 5-14 (functional age range).
- Respite is also open to siblings of special needs kids.
- Respite is open to anyone with a heart to reach special needs kids. You do not have to be a member of Mount Olive to volunteer.
