Frequently Asked Questions

Can my child attend a Project Outreach session?

Project Outreach welcomes individuals with disabilities from ages 0-21 and their siblings from ages 0-12. We aim to be inclusive of all families and their children.

Is there any fee for coming to a session?

No -- Project Outreach sessions have always been and continue to be completely free of charge, although donations are appreciated. State respite vouchers are not necessary -- feel free to keep these and make use of them for other services.

Is there any commitment to come back for multiple sessions?

No. Project Outreach sessions are completely independent of each other and there is no commitment to return.

What does a typical Saturday session look like?

12:45-1:00: Check in session attendees and have volunteers available for walking kids to the meet and greet area where we will begin session instructions and announcements at 1:05 p.m.

 

1:05: Meet and Greet Announcements

 

Volunteers will introduce themselves, we will discuss the schedule and the stations and allow the kids to go with volunteers.

 

1:15-2:30: Station 1 Playtime (Session Attendees will work within stations)

 

2:30-3:00: (Snack) - {If your child has special dietary needs or preferences, please provide that at check-in}

 

3:00-4:00: Outdoor Playtime

 

Now that the kiddos are full of food and energy, lets help them burn some of that off by letting them play outside (weather permitting) If we do not have formidable weather, then we will have an alternate activity which will include a movie viewed at the Technology Station.

 

4:00-4:30: Story-Time, Group Activity, or Sharing Time

 

During this 30 Minute block, we want to give the kids a time to listen to a short story, do a short activity such as play a game like charades, and even share about their experience at Project Outreach. This helps our organization to know what the kids are enjoying and even where we can improve. In addition, it gets them to participate together, even if it is just listening to a story!

 

4:30-5:00: Clean-up and Check-Out

 

This last 30 minutes is intended for everyone helping to clean up and check out time for a number of the participants.

May I pick my child up early if I need to?

Yes! Please speak with a Project Outreach staff member at the beginning of the session to inform them of your plans, but it is common for children to be picked up early.

Can I volunteer while my child attends a session?

The purpose of respite care is to provide parents with time to rest, recharge, and take care of their own needs, so we ask that parents do not volunteer at sessions while their own needs, so we ask that parents do not volunteer at sessions while their own child is there.
