Mission

The mission of Take a Break Babysitting is to offer relief to those families who have had difficulty finding and maintaining appropriate and adequate support and care for their children with autism and/or other developmental disabilities.

Caring for a child with a developmental disability often results in pressures and stress not experienced by other parents or caregivers. Every family and child needs a break every once and a while. Take a Break Babysitting is prepared to do that by providing you and your family relief by placing an experienced sitter in your home who organizes and provides structured activities and supervision. Wether it's a trip to the children's museum, a walk to the park, or simply playing a game at home, parents or other caregivers will have the opportunity to regroup and re-energize.
