If you’re interested in helping a child with special needs, but just aren’t able to become a full-time foster parent, then working as a respite care provider may be perfect for you.
Many of our respite care providers want to care for a child for short periods of time - during the day, weekends, or even for a week - which can be a huge help to our foster or adoptive parents who need a break.
To become a respite care provider, you do not have to have experience with children with disabilities, just a desire and willingness to be involved in a child’s life. Respite providers receive specialized training, financial compensation, and 24-hour support from our licensed staff. See calendar for all support group meeting dates.
So if you’re ready to help a family in need, read our Steps & Requirements to Become a Respite Care Provider.
