/ˈrespət,rēˈspīt/ Definition: a short period of rest or relief from something challenging.
Parents of children impacted by Autism are "on" 24/7. When their kids come to ride, parents get to enjoy the great outdoors and simply take a rest.
Sometimes they enjoy a massage while they wait and spend time with the other caregivers. Other times, moms get together for a night out or one of our Mom's Round Ups.
Just For the Moms
Moms' Round Up
Moms' Round Up is a monthly outing intended to give the moms in our community an opportunity for respite. Moms who have children impacted by autism and related disabilities are often over extended, and we believe that something as simple as an evening at the ranch with other moms who “get it” is just what these super moms need to refresh and refuel.
Annual retreats offer moms a break to regroup and refresh to be all they need to be for their families.
One mom said “I so appreciate all the time and effort you put into making this magical night. I truly enjoyed talking with everyone and sharing stories and advice about our kids."
“Tonight was exactly what my heart needed. I was surrounded by amazing moms who get it.”
