Respite Care Services

Need a Break?

Respite care is short-term care that allows parents/guardians of children (ages 6 to 17) with a behavioral health diagnosis to take a break from the daily routine and stress of caregiving.

Choose a trusted friend or relative to care for your child. Use up to three mini grants per child for up to $300 each.
