What is Buddy Break?

Buddy Break is a FREE Parents’ Day Out/respite program where kids with all types of special needs (VIP kids) have FUN while their parents get a BREAK. At Buddy Break, VIP kids and their siblings make new friends, play games, do crafts, hear children’s stories, enjoy music, and more! Meanwhile, parents get a break from their ongoing care-giving responsibilities, usually for three hours on a Friday night or Saturday morning. 

Need a Break?

Do you have a VIP and need a break? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

VIPs include kids with any physical, cognitive, medical, or hidden disability, chronic or life-threatening illness, or those who are medically fragile. This program is for VIP kids ages 2 to 16, as well as siblings K4 to fifth grade. Some Buddy Break locations have expanded their programs to serve a wider age range based on the need in their communities.

Below are 3 steps to get involved with a Buddy Break near you:

  1. Register online in our secure database (Click here)
  2. Find a Buddy Break location near you (Click here). You do not have to be a church member. 
  3. Contact that location’s coordinator and schedule a time to go through a VIP orientation! After you attend an orientation, you are welcome to attend any Buddy Break program across the country that has availability.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Our programs are FREE to VIP kids and their families BECAUSE OF the generosity of people like YOU.
