A Key part of Ability Tree’s mission is to partner with likeminded organizations to provide rest and support for families of children with disabilities. Our respite is modeled after 99 Balloons rEcess program for kids with special needs and their siblings.
rEcess, a 99 Balloons initiative, is a 4-hour Friday night respite program for children with special needs and their siblings ages 12 and under. We also offer a rEcess for teens ages 13-19 and their siblings 8 and older. Each child with special needs is teamed up with a one-to-one volunteer for the evening. Siblings are overseen by volunteers and enjoy their own activities. Activities include arts and crafts, games, special guests, and movie.
Preregistration is required, please locate the rEcess in your area for more information or to register.
