Sharing Hands: A Respite Experience (SHARE) partners with all members of families where there are children with special needs, supporting their efforts to establish and maintain strong and successful families.
We offer a myriad of programs ranging from parent groups, Respite Nights, in-home respite care, SibShops, summer camps, holiday parties and so much more.
Respite programs occur times monthly, on Friday evenings from 6:00pm-10:00pm, volunteers, supervised by SHARE staff, gather at First Christian Church in Midland or Crossroads Fellowship Church in Odessa to care for children who have special needs and their siblings. Parents can enjoy their time away from their kids knowing that their children are being cared for by loving individuals within a loving and nurturing environment. There is always a nurse on location so that any emergency can be handled in a professional way.
Sibshop provides siblings with peer support and information, thereby allowing them to know that they are not the only youngsters who are in this situation. Once a month, SHARE staff and volunteers (particularly adult siblings) facilitate Sibshop, where siblings can talk about their concerns and assist one another to discover new coping techniques. Social and recreational activities are planned so that they can have fun and develop friendships with other siblings.
