Many families who have children with special needs struggle to find acceptance, often feeling their children don’t “belong.” One way we share God’s love with them is through GRACE Respite. GRACE (God Reaches All Children Everywhere) is a once-a-month experience for children with special needs (and their young siblings) that gives their parents a much needed evening out. The only thing that rivals the blessings the families experience is the blessings experienced by the volunteers. Our GRACE volunteers have a heart for these families and understand that children are blessings from God and need His love regardless of their circumstances.

  • SENSORY ROOM

    The Sensory Room is the newest addition to GRACE. It’s a safe space where children who struggle with sensory experiences can go to take a break and calm their senses. This special room is calming, with soft lights, soft music, and activities that help the body settle. It includes various sitting options for calming and a mini trampoline for those needing to work out some extra energy.
