Respite services provide temporary relief from the demands of caregiving, which helps reduce overall family stress. This often enables families to better meet the needs of their loved one.
Respite is an “indirect” service that provides relief to individuals who are responsible for the primary care and support of an individual with a developmental disability. When a family member, Family Care provider or live-in/house-parent staff person has to deal with such things as illness, emergency, and caregiver or staff vacation, respite services can ensure that their loved one’s needs are met.
Employment services help individuals earn pay, increase their independence, gain self-confidence and develop relationships in their community.
Employment services help individuals identify their strengths, skills, and interests. Employment staff help individuals:
- Put together their resumes,
- Find jobs in the community,
- Apply for jobs.

Once the individuals have a job, employment staff help them learn what they need to know to do their job, help when their job changes, and help them understand how to fit in with other employees at work.

Our staff strives to provide person-centered services to the individual in need, and to collaborate with family members in a team-based approach to service provision. Finding the right match between an individual and a specialist is our priority, as we seek to form long-standing and secure connections.
