*The Bedford Park PNO is only for adult participants.
Do You Need a Parent’s Night Out?If you are a parent of caregiver with a child(ren) with an intellectual/developmental disability, and are in need of a few hours of relief, one of these groups may be for you.
How do I sign up?If you are new to CSS, you must contact our Intake Coordinator for an intake appointment. You do not need to be currently enrolled in CSS services to participate in a PNO. However, your child(ren) must qualify as having a diagnosed Intellectual/developmental disability. If you already receive services through CSS, you can ask your Service Coordinator about participating in a PNO.
What is involved?To keep the groups manageable, space is limited. Reservations are required, and taken on first call basis. Reservations are taken only for one month at a time. You may drop off your child(ren) ages 3-13 who qualifies, along with their siblings for a few hours of small group activities, dinner, music and/or crafts. Trained professional staff from CSS supervises all children for the entire three hour period. Siblings may only attend with the child(ren) qualifying for services. Is there a fee? There is a $10.00 fee for families with only one child/ $15.00 for families with two of more children attending the group.
