Respite Events

Leader: Art Larson

                          Holy Cross Respite Events

The Events

Holy Cross respite events offer 3.5 hours of fun for children affected by disability and
siblings, ages 1 to 12 (developmentally), allowing parents to take a break for a few
hours. Children are then engaged with games, crafts, music, and snacks.  All activities
are led by trained staff and volunteers.  Each child has a “buddy” to look after them and
play with them during the respite event.  An on-site nurse is available.


If you are interested in volunteering, we are always appreciative of volunteers to be a
“buddy” with a child with a disability or a typical sibling.  If you are not a member of
Holy Cross Lutheran Church, we require a reference from your Pastor, and a background
check.  A short training time is provided prior to each respite event.

If you would like more information or would like to volunteer, please contact Art Larson
through the church office at 408-356-3525 or email
