    One Saturday per month, August through June, we provide 4 hours of respite time for parents and children.

Organized group hosting activities, such as dance, theater, or music, are welcome as well. Please contact Shauna at 301-663-0909 x140 for information about volunteering at Parents' Day Out.

  • Do you enjoy sharing your time and activities?

    You will meet someone who shares your interests and would enjoy going with you to the movies, concerts, shopping, the library or sight-seeing. You may simply relax with a picnic and a visit to a local park. Friendships are welcome!

  • Volunteer to share your expertise.

    Volunteer mentors are always appreciated! Could you help someone learn about your favorite hobby or skill? Any life skill that you would like to share with another could be helpful. You do not need to be a professional in the area, just if you have a working knowledge. Some examples are:
    -Cooking skills
    -Computer skills
