I am one of the founding members of GAB, Inc. who formed this organization with other mothers of children with special needs. As parents to a child with special needs, our resources were limited. When forming this organization, we thought other parents/caregivers were probably dealing with similar situations as ourselves. This foundation has strengthened many families in Southern Nevada by giving them the necessary support to take one day at a time. I am proud to be part of this organization and what GAB has done to support families.

I have been an active volunteer with GAB Inc. for over 5 years. This is a grassroots organization that was started by a small group of parents with special needs children. Together, they would mentor and assist in supporting each other to develop a skill base, educate and share in each other the trials of raising children with a 24/7 365 day need for additional support. What an inspiration. From this small group, GAB has grown to help those in the community facing the same challenges. GAB provides a much needed service, Respite. Each third Saturday of the month families are welcome to come to our Respite Activity Day and let their children learn, grow, develop and play. While the children are being taken care of, the caretaker/parent is given at leat 6 hours to rejuveniate and renew. As a volunteer, I see the children happy to be apart of the program but what I notice is who those 6 hours has helped the caretaker/parent. Some come in with on overwhelmed feeling only to return with a sense peace. Volunteering and being a part of this wondering program and how it effects families is in some ways my sense of peace. GAB Inc. is a worthwhile and much needed community program.

I have been with GAB for 6 years and nothing can effect your outlook as seeing our team at work. The love that goes into caring for an individual with special needs is shared by our staff and volunteers. Respite is like taking a deep breath knowing that your loved one is being cared for while you "Take a Break".

We are not there to replace you. We cannot do that. But we can be there for you when you need the time.

Give me A Break, Inc., is a very small grassroots organization, that assisted my family and I with respite for my son with special needs. There Respite Day activity is a wonderful day that my son attends once a month that makes a world of difference. He really looks forward to going and interacting with the friends that he has met and the wonderful volunteers. It is akso a break for me, and I know that the volunteers have his best interest at heart.
