Respite care is a service we developed out of our TFC program to help support
our families. Families parenting a child with special needs can benefit from regular
breaks and respite provides that needed break through short term or temporary
Respite provides families and children relief from crisis situations
in the family.
Planned Respite provides regular
relief to families and children one or two weekends per month.
Respite provides a safe place for children who are in the process
of transitioning to out of home placement.
Crisis Respite offers
an alternative to a psychiatric hospital by providing a safe, stable environment
for emotionally disturbed children who are experiencing a mental health crisis.
CCS Youth Group offers a break for
the foster family (and the foster kid!)
Our respite families are
as varied as the children we serve. Some families open their homes just on weekends
and others provide care seven days a week. Each family completes more than 40
hours of pre-service training, a criminal records check, a comprehensive home
evaluation and additional education on a monthly basis. These respite families
offer children the chance to take a break in structured and therapeutic homes
equipped to manage many types of behavior.
