Who Are We?

Loving HANDS  small for website.jpg

Loving Hands Ministry was started in January 2015 as an outreach that provides an atmosphere of Hope, Acceptance, iNclusion, Dignity and Support to children with hidden and visible special needs and their families.

Mark 10:14-15 But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

We offer a free 3-hour respite, one Saturday night per month at no cost to you. Parents/caregivers can leave their children/adults with special needs & their siblings with us for a fun-filled night while they go enjoy some time by themselves. Registration is required to attend. Please let us know you would like to attend by Noon on the Wednesday before the scheduled respite night, so we can assure we have enough 1:1 buddies for your child(ren).

Check us out on our Facebook page to get the most recent, updated information. Please contact Erin 440-645-4434 or Melissa 440-858-3228 for more information.

What Next?

If you would like to bring your child/ adult and their siblings to a Loving Hands Respite. Contact us and we will send the registration packet to you. In the packet, you will find that we take general information as well as information about your children so we can best serve them while they are with us.

We will discuss your concerns and clearly understand that leaving your children with anyone is a big deal. We don't take it lightly. We are here to serve you.
