PAUSE

What is Pause?

Pause offers families of children with physical, mental, developmental, medical, behavioral and/or learning challenges access to a broad range of support options maximizing the use of community resources and family support networks.



Pause - Families   Pause - Volunteers   Pause - Partners

Our Mission

Pause is an initiative for special needs families committed to providing consistent support unique to that family’s needs. In addition, we partner with the family in order to grow their natural support system.

Our Vision

  • Each CHILD will be valued, loved and appreciated for their individual gifts and abilities. He or she will be given the opportunity for FUN and connection with other Pause kiddos.
  • Each FAMILY will be given the opportunity to share their story and partner with Pause for better outcomes in caregiver stress and family functioning.
  • Each VOLUNTEER and COMMUNITY PARTNER will see the capacity to make a difference and be a part of the solution for Pause families.

Our Strategies

Pause will…
  • Provide opportunities for REST through our respite events.
  • SUPPORT families by providing a self-discovery tool to assess needs for their family and then connecting them to resources available.
  • Provide COMMUNITY and FUN to families through events aimed at building a family’s connection to each other and other Pause families.

Thank You to All Our Community Partners!

Program Testimonials


"This program is more than what I
expected. I feel so blessed to be
able to receive this type of help. My
battery has been running off dead
cells for a while."

- guardian of a Pause participant

“Pause has had an excellent impact on our son! Our favorite part of this program is the support. My son has another outlet of LOVE and FUN! All this and the opportunity for my husband and I to step away and refresh as a couple... it doesn't get better than that.”

- parent of Pause participant

“Respite helped give a feeling that
help is there for us – we aren’t in
this alone.”

- parent of Pause participant

“Pause has positively impacted our family in several ways! Our girls LOVE the individual attention and fun activities at each Pause event, while our oldest child enjoys time at home to himself. It offers us a worry free night where we can relax and focus on each other. Pause allows each of us to rejuvenate in a way that we need and love!”

- parent of Pause participant
