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.
