Freedom Respite

A Ministry of Freedom Fellowships

What is Respite?

Respite means “a period of rest or relief.” Respite events provide parents or caregivers a temporary relief from the responsibilities of caring for individuals with disabilities. 

Respite Events

Our goal is to provide a monthly event that both parents and children look forward to! We want to provide parents with the gift of time and rest. Your children will be given 1-on-1 attention from a personal buddy and get to be included in activities that are tailored to meet their needs. Our adult participants will have the opportunity to engage in fellowship in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

Our Volunteers

We have a team of volunteers from Freedom Fellowships that are trained and equipped to serve individuals with disabilities. Several of our volunteers have attended Joni and Friends Family Retreats. Additionally, many have a background in education, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and we have a nurse present at every event.
