For the first time ever, Achieve is hosting a night out for caretakers of special needs kids. The Oasis of Appreciation and Relaxation will be held on Tuesday, June 5 at 5:30pm at the Pinelands Family Success Center in Pemberton Township, NJ.
The idea came to me after a conversation with Karen,* a mother of a special needs child in Browns Mill, NJ. Karen is such a wonderful mom. I admire her so much for all the effort, hard work and love she puts in to help her autistic child, day in and day out. She is usually so upbeat. But, on this morning, I heard her pain. She was alone, navigating her challenges alongside her triumphs. I desperately wanted to do something to help her, to make a meaningful difference in her life.
And so, the Oasis of Appreciation and Relaxation was born. One special evening of food, relaxation and pampering designed for caretakers of special needs children to show Karen – and so many other mothers like her – just how much she is admired and appreciated.
We are excited to host this event at a time when it is most needed. As another school year comes to a close, long summer days that often lack routine are approaching. At this challenging juncture, the Oasis event is an opportunity to bring women together to make new friends, support one another, connect, and rejuvenate. We’re hoping that participants gain lifelong friendships and the fortitude to get through difficult times with positivity and strength.
Oasis participants will enjoy adult company while certified staff supervise their children (age 2 and up). Dinner will be served. Special appreciation to the amazing staff at Pinelands Family Success Center for organizing and graciously hosting the event.
