An extraordinary program that provides your child with the chance to bond with their volunteers in a setting in which they are most comfortable, their own homes. Volunteers work with their special friend and their families to establish a schedule that works for both. With so much to look forward to, these visits are cherished by both the children and volunteers.
Children and their volunteers spend an hour each week baking cookies, playing games, creating arts ‘n crafts, reading books or doing just about anything fun! Having his or her friends over to play – an activity taken for granted by most children – instills immense feelings of belonging and self-value in a child with special needs.
While children and volunteers develop meaningful relationships, parents receive valuable time to rest and recharge. With so much to look forward to at these visits, it is no wonder the families wait all week for their volunteers to show up at their doorsteps!
