Respite Care Connection (RCC) provides families a break from parenting and at the same time allows the children to participate in positive community-based activities. The program has been successful for many children and youth who have struggled in community settings.
RCC offers fee-for-service respite for families caring for 6 to 17 year old children and youth with behavior and social challenges (ADHD, FASD, Autism, ODD, etc.).
The community-based direction of the Respite Care Connection program:
- Focuses on small group outings for children and youth who often have difficulty in community settings.
- Offers a variety of activities that align with a child’s interests and abilities.
- Recognizes the developmental needs of individuals within various age groups and develops age specific programming.
- RCC specializes in strengthening children’s self-esteem, skill development and socialization skills through a fun and safe environment with a ratio of one staff to three children/youth.
RCC is based on the following five elements:
- Social connection
- New experiences
- Personal challenges
- Learning opportunities
