Break Time

Through Break Time, single parents have frequent opportunities to bring their child(ren) to a safe, fun, and developmentally-appropriate program led by caring adults. This free service allows single parents to enjoy several hours of uninterrupted time (support) for running errands, studying, or simply having some alone time. All of the extraordinary volunteers who make Break Time possible undergo background checks and are well equipped and enthusiastic about engaging with the children who attend. 

Several Break Times are held throughout the year at multiple locations across the Des Moines metro area in order to serve parents by geographical area (e.g., north, south, east, west). Based on survey data collected from single parents, Break Times are primarily held on Fridays or Saturdays.

All single parents registering one or more children in Break Time will need to review and accept a liability waiver & release upon registration.
