Gift of Time - Spectrum Respite & Recreation

The Gift of Time respite program strengthens families with teens & tweens age 11-17 with autism by giving the parents or caregivers a much needed break.  A dynamic group of volunteers bring supported recreational programming to youth, tweens, and teens with autism in a safe and calm environment.

Behavioral health staff will oversee trained volunteers - who are closely monitored and supported.  Gift of Time staff and mentors provide a crucial sense of normalcy to the teens & tweens through shared joy and respect. Pre-registration and admission is required prior to attendance.  Please note - we need to get to know your child's unique likes, dislike, challenges and strengths; identify the right volunteer mentor and ensure we have a very good fit prior to placing with a volunteer.  Once your registration is received and accepted, you will be contacted to schedule a meet and greet, at our Redmond office, to ensure the proper match between youth and staff.
