Better Together, a nonprofit dedicated to families and children, is hosting a Parents’ Night Out event on Friday, March 15 for families in St. Johns County.
The program offers parents, grandparents and other caregivers access to a couple of hours of no-cost care for children from infant to 17 years old. Better Together will provide background-checked volunteers in addition to dinner, games and fun for children to enjoy while parents are away.
“As a parent, having a night off to take a break, catch up on errands or do something for yourself is important,” said Megan Rose, CEO of Better Together. “Parents’ Night Out grants children a night full of fun and gives parents time away with the reassurance that their children are being cared for by background-checked volunteers.”
Parents’ Night Out will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 15 at Homeless Coalition of St. Johns County, located at 62 Chapin St. in St. Augustine.

Through the Better Families program, families are offered a preventive alternative to foster care while they get the help they need. To date, the program has kept 98% of children served out of foster care. The Better Jobs program was created to address the 76% of families that come to Better Together because of economic hardship tied to unemployment.
