Our retreat theme this year will be, "Worthy as a Mother"!


You are worthy of it all...especially this time to yourself.  Allow yourself to relax and recharge.

About our retreat

It is our mission to not only connect and support our special needs families but to find ways to enhance their lives. This retreat will be a perfect combination of activities and events to provide rest, rejuvenation and community with other mothers of special needs children.

Our #GiveMomABreak Retreat will be a powerful time of rest and relaxation to help our moms gain clarity, peace and calming, and focus to return ready to jump back into the daily routine of appointments and schedules, while doing it with a fresh perspective and knowledge on basic self care practices to keep the whole family feeling balanced. 

We will come together for an amazing 3 nights where special needs moms can take a much deserved break and learn and practice self care with professionals in the field of yoga & meditation, health & nutrition, and stress reduction practices while enjoying the community of being surrounded by like minded women on the beautiful white sand beaches of the Florida panhandle.

ECEF contributes approximately half the cost of this retreat to help make this event affordable for our special needs moms to attend.
