FUSION is the special needs ministry at Good Shepherd. Our mission is to reach and serve families impacted by special needs and create an environment for them to discover and embrace a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Buddy Break is a monthly, respite opportunity for children with special needs and their siblings provided at no charge. At Buddy Break, all children are intentionally paired up one-on-one with a trained buddy. We play games, do projects, play in the gym, and have a lot of fun—all while parents and caregivers get a well-deserved break.
This program is sponsored by Nathaniel’s Hope, a national organization that supports Buddy Breaks in churches. After registering on their website, families have the opportunity to take their children to any Buddy Break—whether local or while out of town on vacation!
