At the Charles River Center, we provide a multitude of resources for families who are caring for a loved one with a developmental disability. If you are interested in any of the programs below or would like more information, please contact our Family Support Program Director, Renee
Scherer at 781-972-1079 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents Night/Afternoon Out
Understanding that parents need a break and some time to themselves, Family Support invites families to drop off all their children for a fun night or afternoon of music, arts and crafts, cooking and games in Natick and in Needham. Held seasonally.
Educational seminars are held throughout the year during the evening at our Natick and Needham sites and include such topics as:
- IPAD applications
- Financial planning
- Friendship training
- And more!
Visit our Facebook page for the latest event listings.
For parents and caregivers who need to travel
over a weekend, or who would just like a break while knowing their loved one is
in good hands. The house is a two-bedroom that can accommodate up to four
guests, aged 18 and over, who do not have serious ambulation issues. Drop
off is at 4 pm on Friday and pickup is at 3 pm on Sunday. While at the
house, participants take day trips, enjoy meals, watch movies and play games.
