Childrens’ Respite

Our Childrens' Respite Program is designed to support families who have a child with a disability. Respite is a family-to-family program where the child typically goes into the home of the caregiver to provide the family with a break from continuous care of their child. Respite visits generally happen over a weekend or on an overnight basis. However, a more flexible schedule can be designed to meet the needs of the family.

Families interested in receiving respite should speak to their social worker for service inquiry. Families without a social worker can contact the Ministry of Child and Family Development (MCFD) to request an intake worker for their child.
