Weekend Away

Once a quarter, from a Thursday night until Sunday evening, we invite 4 men and 4 women with disabilities to have a weekend with friends away from home. These weekends are a time not only of deepening friendships with young adults with and without disabilities, but also to practice independent living skills. We hope to provide a space of rest for our families too as they can have a break from full-time care. These weekends look like walking to the Matthews Farmer’s Market, the local coffee shop, making bonfires, going to plays, cooking together, and sharing meals.
