CareBreak is a gift of time and energy given for a few hours a week by a committed volunteer to a family caring for a child with special needs. CareBreak provides an opportunity for children and volunteers to become close through fulfilling, one-on-one experiences, while allowing the family to regroup. Typically, CareBreak is provided in the family’s home.

Families of children (birth to 16 years old) who have been diagnosed with a variety of disabilities, including autism, cerebral palsy and other neurological impairments from Allegheny and surrounding counties are eligible.
