Resource Families and relative caregivers are eligible for up to 12 hours of FREE respite care each month and can contact the Department of Social Services (email@example.com) or call DSS directly at 1-866-899-2649.
If the family is caring for a child that requires more than 12 hours, families are asked to please contact Gustavo Prado at firstname.lastname@example.org; these cases will be reviewed for need, natural support system, and plan for when the short term exception ends.
You may also consider becoming a volunteer/ informal respite provider. Through our Prudent Parent policy, caregivers can seek the informal support of friends and community members. If you are interested in supporting our fostering community this way, please contact us for more information (email@example.com) and to get linked to a family. Thank you!
