Respite Care

RESPITE is a service that provides a break for people caring for and supporting an individual with a disability.
Individuals and families of a child with a developmental disability are eligible for our Respite Care program.
A developmental disability is a functional impairment due to autism, brain trauma, cerebral palsy, cognitive disability, seizure disorder, or a similar handicapping condition. Resources are available to some individuals with a diagnosis other than a developmental disability – depending on County of residence.

Respite support services are offered to families in a variety of ways, including:
• RESPITE CARE:
o Provides support funding on an hourly, overnight, or multiple-day basis in the family's home.

• RESPITE & RECREATION CLUB:
o Offers an activity-filled evening of respite care for children with a disability and their siblings ages birth to 21 years of age.

• MONTHLY NEWSLETTERS AND E-MAIL ALERTS
