Respite Care Events

CMFCAA Respite Care Events

Respite care is care provided to a foster or adopted child for a short period of time by someone other than the primary caregivers (i.e. foster parents, adoptive parents, or kinship parents). Respite care gives the caregiver and children the chance to have short, regular periods of time apart in which they can rest and recharge.

How does CMFCAA Respite work?

CMFCAA offers monthly respite events for all of the families we serve. This is a four-hour monthly event filled with activity, play, and excitement for the kids. It is by reservation only and is limited to a certain number of children per event. Orientation packets must be filled out if your child will be participating.
