EV Free Church launches special needs program

Evangelical Free Church of Conejo Valley has launched a new program for children with special needs called “Buddy Break,” which provides parents with a three-hour break to relax and run errands while the children participate in supervised story time, games and music.

Buddies are specially trained and screened volunteers who are assigned to individual children for one-on-one attention throughout each session.

The program is free for parents.

Rhonda Cattley, director of disability ministries at the church, is directing the program.

The next meeting will be Sat., Aug. 15. Parents must register their children ahead of time. For more information or to RSVP, call (805) 2625000, ext. 870, or e-mail buddybreak@evfree.net.

The church is at 999 Rancho Conejo Blvd., Newbury Park.
