Volunteer Respite Program registration form

The Volunteer Respite Program gives the parents or caregivers of special needs children a much-needed break through respite events held throughout the year. Volunteers are needed for these events primarily to spend time with the children throughout the day or help with other tasks to help the events run smoothly (i.e. serve snack/lunch, assist with clean up, assisting other volunteers). The program participants range in age from 0-21.

Interested in volunteering?

Individual and group volunteers are always welcome. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old, with parent/guardian permission. Volunteers younger than 15 are able to volunteer if a parent/guardian attends the respite event with them.

In addition to filling out the online form below, you must print, sign and submit the following two forms no later than one week before the registered event. Once completed, they may be 1) scanned and emailed to volunteerrespite@chw.org, 2) Faxed to (414) 453-2538 (Attention: Volunteer Respite), or 3) Mailed to: Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services- Volunteer Respite, 620 South 76th St., Ste. 120, Milwaukee, WI 53214.

The Volunteer Respite Program will conduct a background check on all registered volunteers. This will be of no cost to the volunteer.
A confirmation email will be sent to each volunteer a few days prior to the respite event, which will confirm date/time/location of the event and provide any additional information for that specific event site, such as parking instructions.
 
Call (414) 292-4161 with any questions about the Volunteer Respite Program volunteer opportunities.
