Your support can make the world of difference.

Make a Difference in the Lives of a Child - Become a Respite Caregiver! 

Looking to earn a little extra money from home one weekend per month? Are you interested in trying something new that is flexible with your schedule? Do you have room in your home and heart?

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to make a positive impact in a child’s life? If you have some experience or interest supporting individuals who have developmental disabilities this opportunity will be a great fit for you!

Our Children's Respite Program supports 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. Respite visits generally happen over a weekend on an overnight basis. However, a more flexible schedule can be designed to meet the needs of the family and caregiver availability.
