Description of Service
Family Care for Children and Youth can provide short-term respite foster care in the event that a child needs to periodically stay with a foster family during weekends and holidays or for other short spans of time. This short-term foster care is the ideal arrangement for a child who needs a break from his or her group home, institution, or biological/legal family situation. Respite care guarantees that a child always has a safe, familiar place to stay where he or she has already established productive family relationships. Respite care can also serve as a backup living arrangement in the event that a child needs to relocate.
