Respite Program

STRIDE gives families / caregivers 3 hours responsibility free time, while we provide activities and dinner for youth with special needs! Whether parents decide to do some shopping, go out with friends, or just stay home and relax, we would love to provide that opportunity for you!

    Meet Our Program Leader: Lori Buno-Taylor

    Although Lori is new to the West Sand Lake area, working with others is not new. She served students and families in the Malone Area of Northern New York for three decades, as a special education teacher and preschool coordinator. After retiring in 2020 from education, she was appointed to serve the West Sand Lake Community as pastor for Church of the Covenant in Averill Park. The STRIDE Center and programs have become a place of joy and connection for our new Volunteer Respite Leader.

    Interested in volunteering for the respite program? Wonderful!

    Contact STRIDE Program Director Carly Ronan to express interest.
