Special Needs Sunday

This year on November 24th, Friday NITE Friends will be the recipient of the proceeds of the Sunday services offering. It is no coincidence that Thanksgiving is the time of the year when we have the opportunity to give to this very special program, for Thanksgiving is the time when we offer thanks to God for the blessings He has given us. This year Joan and David Hunsaker will share their story of raising a daughter with special needs. They are just one family who has benefited from your continued commitment to Friday NITE Friends. Please consider supporting our program this Thanksgiving season.

Welcome to Friday NITE Friends

Friday NITE Friends is a respite care program in Plano, Texas serving medically fragile and special needs children and their families. This unique non-profit was founded in 1992, when Custer Road United Methodist Church created an urgently needed medical respite for families in need. 2012 marks the 20th anniversary of this very successful ministry.

Friday NITE Friends is FREE and open to medically fragile and special needs children as well as their siblings, giving parents a welcome night off. The program is available to anyone through application (see application links to the right).  We have medical staff on-site, along with church and community volunteers, working to make each Friday evening a safe, fun and rewarding experience for all participants.
