The Recreation & Respite (R&R) program provides relief for family members and primary caregivers of children with special needs and their siblings. Children ages 3-21 (including siblings) participate in a wide range of recreational activities. Our experienced, caring staff and volunteers provide dinner or a snack and any necessary physical care while parents/caregivers take a much deserved break. R&R is currently offered in Medford on Saturdays. Medford area only -"In-service R&R Days." The Medford program will provide care on Medford Schools "In-service Days," designed like their "Saturday Recreation & Respite (R&R) Program."

Some of the activities available during R&R include:

Participant fees are kept as low as possible and cover only a portion of the cost of running the program. R&R is only possible because of the generous support of individual donors.
