RADresouce was in April. It that provided resources, breakout sessions, giveaways, and fun for parents of special needs kids. Watch this recap of the event and contact Taylor to learn about next year’s event and all things RAD!

RAD Week was in June. It was a free and fun inclusion and faith-based special needs week. Parents dropped off all of the kids in their family, not just the children with special needs, and enjoyed evenings off while volunteers at Austin Christian Fellowship put on a fun and interactive vacation Bible school for the kids. Our goal is to help every child and student that attends know how loved they are and that they are perfectly and wonderfully made. Our parent goal is to provide a time of rest and connection for parents and caregivers. Safety is one of our top goals; we have professionals and medical teams onsite at every event. 

Contact Taylor to learn more about RAD or to host an event at your church!
