rEcess is GLO's respite night which happens once a month on a Friday night from 6:30-9:30 pm and runs from October through May. Parents drop off their children with special needs and the siblings for three hours. Parents go and enjoy anything of their choosing while we throw a bit of a party for the kids. Each month features a different theme with games, activities, and a movie. For more information about volunteering or attending rEcess, contact Katherine Johnston at


The parent's night out group meets once per month on a Friday night from October through May. This gives parents of children with special needs a place to connect and have fellowship with other parents who also walk a similar journey.  For information, please contact Jessica Brister at
