Gio's Garden, a one-of-a-kind facility for special needs children and their families, held an open house Sunday at its new facility in Middleton.
The center is designed to provide therapy for special needs kids, while lightening the load for their parents.
"Where families of special needs kids birth to 6 can leave their children for a couple hours per week take a break and know that their children are being taken care of," said Ron Giordan, whose 6-year-old special needs son, Giovanni, was the inspiration for the respite center.
Organizers raised $250,000 over the past two years to make the facility a reality.
It will be run by occupational and physical therapists, and have room for up to eight kids at a time for four hours each.
