Respite Care Program

The mission of the Respite Care Program is to provide funding of respite services for children with special health care needs and their families.

Through a grant from the Office of Genetics and Children with Special Healthcare Needs of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, a limited amount of mini-grant funding is available periodically to defray the cost of respite services.

Respite care is consistently identified by families as a key need for coping with the challenges of raising a child with special healthcare needs.
