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:

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