rEcess Kingsway is a free respite program that runs one Saturday per month (except summer) at Kingsway Baptist Church.  We are proud to be the first rEcess off American soil.  We serve families affected by disability.  Parents bring their child with special needs and the siblings to rEcess so that they can go out on a date and reconnect.  It is our mandate to ensure that all the children get a 1:1 volunteer-to-child ratio to share the evening with.  Quite often siblings of special needs children miss out on opportunities and take on responsibility at a young age; we take this seriously and are pleased that we can offer them the same attention as their special needs sibling. 

Parents apply to the program using the application form at www.99balloons.org/toronto

Once the application form has been reviewed by our Medical Advisor parents will receive an email indicating that they are invited to rEcess or that we need time to put resources into place before an invitation can be extended.

Our mission is to see God at work through the volunteers and the families we serve.  We do this by assisting the parents to have a date night, free of worry about any of their children, which in turn allows them to reconnect with one another. Jesus said, Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me'. (Matthew 25:40)

We are currently accepting applications for new volunteers for rEcess.  Previous experience working with children with special needs is not required.  We train all our volunteers.  A heart to serve these families is mandatory.  Please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
