As the holiday approaches, the smell of pine trees, candy and cookies begins to fill the air — but so does the stress. The holidays can be especially hard for families with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, since there is so much going on.
Community Navigators’ annual mini-getaway is designed to offer a much-needed break for both parents and caregivers and the individual with disabilities. This year’s annual getaway is at Foxwoods, where we will enjoy the holiday decorations, visit the outlet stores for some holiday gift shopping, go bowling, have dinner at the casino, and spend time with old friends or make new friends. It will be two days full of fun and laughs (with some life skills snuck in).
Everyone needs respite and this is a big reason why Community Navigators designed our mini getaways: to provide local, accessible travel and respite opportunities. Learn more at www.CommunityNavigatorsInc.org
Do you know a family who has a son or daughter with I/DD who would benefit from our upcoming travel opportunities but for whom money presents an issue? During this holiday season donations provided to CNI will go toward scholarships for people who could not otherwise afford a getaway. You can also purchase a donation gift card to give as a gift this holiday season. Let your donation become personal this holiday season and give the gift of respite to a family or caregiver and the gift of fun to an individual with disabilities!!
