BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The 460th Force Support Squadron is scheduled to host the "Give Parents a Break" event 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 18 at the Crested Butte Child Development Center.
The event is open to active duty Air Force and Army members only. To participate in the program, individuals must submit a request to the CDC by noon May 16.
Individuals eligible for the program include someone whose spouse is deployed or on an extended temporary-duty assignment, who is experiencing a family crisis, whose child has special needs, or whose spouse has been required to work extensive extended work shifts.
Individuals need to be referred by one of the following base officials: squadron or equivalent commander, first sergeant, chaplain, medical representative, family advocacy representative, family support center representative, or CDC representative. They must submit a referral and a registration form.
"The Give Parents a Break program is a great opportunity to help military members alleviate some of the stress associated with parenthood along with military service," said Stephanie Iverson, 460th FSS Crested Butte CDC assistant director.
Events are scheduled every third Saturday of the month.
For more information about the event or to submit a request, contact the Crested Butte CDC at 720- 847-6174.
