Night OWLS (Out With Loving Sitters) is a faith based respite program provided on the 1st and 3rd Friday nights of each month for children with special needs and their siblings. Children (to age 13) are paired with a helper for the evening. The trained helpers provide individualized care for each child and participate in preplanned activities and events according to each child’s interest. Nurses are present to assist with any medical needs and to administer medications/feedings. Night OWLS makes every Friday night memorable for the children by bringing in special entertainment, including activities such as dancers, magicians, a petting zoo, and SPCA dogs. After the entertainment, we enjoy a celebration time and then a movie to start calming the children before the parents arrive. Night OWLS is open to the community.
