What is respite?
A Break. A chance to get away and have time to take care of yourself. Some people use it to take a walk, read a book, or run errands. Other people get a haircut, go grocery shopping, or spend time with another child. If you are interested in becoming a respite care provider or a foster home provider please contact us!
