Respites

South Hills Campus
Approximately once per Month

Our respites give parents and caregivers of individuals with special needs a few hours off, while our staff and volunteers have a great time with their loved ones! Individuals with special needs and their siblings are invited for playtime, gym time, crafts, Bible stories, snacks, and the main attraction - a bounce house.

Check-In for Special Needs Families

South Hills Campus
Special Needs Entrance

The Special Needs Ministry uses a secure check-in system at our own separate entrance. This system matches individuals with their parents or caregivers to ensure safe and smooth drop-off and pick-up. It also provides ample space to help each individual with the transition into our area.
