Are you a parent, grandparent, foster parent, or guardian?  When was the last time you had some time to yourself?  Do you have days when you are tired, over-stressed and need relief?  Then Take a Break is the solution for you! 

Take a Break offers a break to any parent or guardian of children who identify on the autism spectrum or have other access and functional needs. The program serves children who are 1 year through 12 years of age (If you have children older than 12 that have special needs or have younger siblings, please talk with the program director as exceptions are made.) The program facilitates opportunities for caregivers to recharge while their children are cared for in a safe, fun, and nurturing environment.

Childcare is provided by TAB staff, on the second and fourth Fridays of each month from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm at Belmont Community Center
