16th Annual Celebration of Love & Children Registration
Please join us at the 16th Annual Celebration of Love & Children on Thursday, May 3, 2018. The event will be held at Valero Energy headquarters, One Valero Way, beginning with a reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner and the program. You will have the opportunity to visit with friends, bid on some fun items in our silent auction, while learning more about the great work that Respite Care is contributing to special children, like Sarah.
Sarah is a three-year-old girl with Autism and a seizure disorder who was removed from her home by Child Protective Services and placed in foster care. She struggled with separation anxiety and had trouble sleeping, which resulted in challenging behaviors. Her foster mom had difficulty finding a daycare that had the medical support and experience to handle Sarah’s unique needs. This meant her foster mom had to take unpaid emergency leave from work to care for Sarah until she found Respite Care Developmental Daycare, where staff are specially trained to handle challenging behaviors and a nurse is on duty to care for her medical needs.
This event will honor our dear friend, Harvey Najim, not only for his commitment to the children of Respite Care, but to all children throughout the San Antonio community. Throughout Respite Care’s history, gifts from Mr. Najim and his foundation were not only key in sustaining the continued provision of care for children with special needs and complex medical conditions, but supported significant expansions of services, increasing the number of children Respite Care has the ability to care for each year.
We hope you will join us to recognize and thank Harvey Najim and support Respite Care’s services. With your help, we can make sure children like Sarah have access to the care they need.
