Family Programs

Ashland Special Needs Ministry will be partnering with two churches to provide respite care for families with children with disabilities. Called and Chosen Respite will be a night out for parents, grandparents, or guardians who have children with disabilities of any age.  This night is also for the siblings to attend so that the parents have a true night out!

Called and Chosen LEADERS will be:

  • Volunteers 13 years or older
  • All Volunteers will have a local background check on file before they are permitted to volunteer
  • Christina Teevan will be present at all Called and Chosen/respite events

Called and Chosen respites will include:

  • Check-in at 4:30 pm
  • A healthy dinner will be provided
  • Volunteers will be a buddy with your child for the evening
