About Us
Mission statement: To preserve and strengthen the family by providing them with a break.
What is respite?
Respite is offered for designated periods of time to allow the caregiver to tend to other family obligations or to take a break from the daily stress of care giving. Respite services are voluntary and can occur in the home or in the community depending on the needs of the family.
Benefits of respite:
  • Minimize Out of Home Placement
  • Reduce Stress
  • Support Family Stability
  • Prevent Abuse & Neglect
  • Preserve & Strengthen the Family
  • Exploration of Community Activities

  • Your child must be diagnosed with a mental health disorder.
  • You must contact your child’s social worker, Intensive or Supportive case manager, service coordinator, or mental health counselor to inquire if they are able to make a referral for respite services.
  • Once your child has been approved you have the opportunity to choose a vendor.
