Giving a break to parents and caregivers who have children
with special needs.
PAUSE for Parent,Play for Kids is grass-roots, community-supported, volunteer-driven respite event for families who have children with special needs.In order for PAUSE to be able to exist for these families we need your help in a variety of ways!
We need volunteers to staff and run PAUSE Parent's Night Out events. This is a great opportunity for a business, sports team, church group, or any other civic-minded group to serve their community. Currently, we are in need of volunteers willing to serve as one:to:one buddies. Find out more on our Volunteer page.
At most PAUSE events we provide dinner or snacks, craft projects and games & activities as part of each event. We need donations of paper goods, craft supplies, and games to stock the closets of each location - this is particularly important as we look to open new locations.
We are also looking for restaurants who would be willing to partner with us by providing dinner for a few PAUSE events each year. We are looking for any business willing to provide a kid-friendly meal. Depending on the level of commitment, the company will receive exposure on our Facebook page, website and/or printed PAUSE marketing and promotional material. For more information please contact Lisa McCoon, FCFC Family Connections Coordinator at 513.887.5506.
If you would like to make a monetary donation to help with these and other expenses for PAUSE, we will also gladly accept those! All donations made to PAUSE are tax-deductible. Monetary donations should be sent to Dennis Burger, 6971 Rosemary Lane, Cincinnati, OH 45236. Checks should be made to Good Life Networks.
Our goal is to eventually have at least one PAUSE - Parent's Night Out event each month in each region of Butler county. This means we need locations willing to host these events! If you have a business or are involved in a faith organization that may be willing to provide space for a PAUSE event, please contact Lisa McCoon, FCFC Family Connections Coordinator at 513.887.5506.
