Free Respite for New York Parents of Children with Special Needs

We’re Here for You

Are you caring at home for a child or adult with developmental disabilities?

The support you’re giving helps your child thrive. 

But what about you?  You, too, need support and need a break.

At Catholic Charities NY we understand that, while fulfilling, caring for an adult or child with developmental disabilities can also be exhausting, isolating and overwhelming.

We also know caregivers do best when given support.

Our free and low-cost respite services offer short-term breaks.  Qualified professionals care for family members with special needs for a few days so caregivers like you can rest and recuperate.

We also offer ongoing support when disabled family members return home.
