Our Children's Respite Program supports families who have a child with a disability (this could include physical and/or developmental disabilities, complex medical needs, or youth who are at flight risk). 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.
