Kid's Night Out

Kids’ Night Out is a monthly respite program for foster families including foster, adoptive, guardianship, kinship and any biological children in the families. Kids’ Night Out serves over 125 families & 350 children annually.


These events rotate between the following:

Family Activities: Family fun activities like ice skating, miniature golf, Fritz’s Adventure, hayrides & pumpkin carving, pool parties & more!

Take-Home Packs: Activity packs for children & families and encourage family bonding while being mindful of those who wish to social distance due to COVID-19. These packs also include family hygiene & cleaning items to relieve some of the financial burden from the families.

In-Person Drop Off Events: Offer a much needed 4-hour break to foster parents by allowing them to enjoy an evening to themselves while their children enjoy time with caring volunteers and other foster children. In-person respite events are offered at the Live 2 Give Hope Center and volunteers are always needed for these events. Dinner is served to volunteers & children attending these respite events.
