Our Respite services provide support to families caring for children with special needs.

Support to families caring for children with disabilities and special needs.

Our respite services use a supportive, nurturing and therapeutic approach, combined with fun, social and recreational activities, while providing a well-deserved break for parents.

Group Respite

This offers a fun, playful afternoon where children with intellectual/developmental disabilities can participate in a variety of social and recreational activities in a group setting. Parents and caregivers can enjoy a well-deserved break knowing that their child is engaged and supported by caring and dedicated respite workers. Group Respite is offered at our West Rogers Park location. 

Voucher Respite

A stipend for parents/caregivers of a child or adult with intellectual/developmental disabilities can be used toward a respite worker that the family hires and pays to provide support, or to help pay for special recreational programs for the person with a disability. Vouchers are provided in the form of reimbursement to the parent/caregiver.
