Relax, Refresh, Rejuvenate

Moms Away!™ is a 24-hour retreat for mothers of children with disabilities and special needs. Studies have shown that mothers, as full time caregivers of children with disabilities have significantly more stress in their daily lives than parents of typical children.

That is why it is important for moms to get away from the daily responsibilities of caring for a child with a disability and spend time focusing on their own need to relax, refresh and rejuvenate.

Your donation will help support 30 mothers with their accommodations and meals so they can attend the next Moms Away retreat. This will allow them the opportunity to put balance back into their lives, to make new friends, and to know they are supported, loved ,and are not alone. We invite you to visit the Moms Away website at www.momsaway.org to learn more.
