Night Lights is a program that serves families with special needs in the Dallas area by giving them a respite night from 6 - 10pm on the first and third Fridays of the month. Children with special needs and their siblings are welcome to come and enjoy different activities such as arts & crafts, computer games, a special show, gym time, and much more. Every child is assisted by a volunteer. Children are admitted between the ages of 6mo - 18yrs. Check our calendar of events on our website for specific dates as we will be adding more. ADVANCED REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Visit our website for information regarding registration details and donations. 

  

Our facility is easy to navigate for people with special needs and our playgrounds are super accommodating to our wheelchair friends.  Everything about our events are planned with children and their special needs in mind.  Our computer lab is outfitted with adaptations for those who can't type. The game room has an Xbox 360 w/ kinect that's perfect for those with little or no motor skills.  The therapy dogs are specially trained to interact with our kids.  Nurses are trained specifically for our population and actually only work with patients with special needs, and even our police officer is trained in mental health and is the father of an adult with special needs. Also, our volunteers are educated, and in most cases, experienced with the unique needs of our kids.
