Buddy Break is a free kids/respite program where kids with special needs (we call them VIP kids) make new friends, play fun games, enjoy crafts, stories, music, activities and more! Siblings have fun too! Meanwhile, their caregivers get a break from their ongoing care-giving responsibilities for three hours.  The first Buddy Break is Oct. 30 from 10-1 at the First Church in Crystal Lake.  Must RSVP to susan.perkins@opad.org       For a list of upcoming Buddy Breaks click here.
