Respite families will be screened and must meet the same criteria as resource families.  Each home will be certified according to Catholic Charities, Inc. standards. 

Respite care is a planned break for resource parents.  It is a preventative strategy that strengthens families, allowing  them to take a break to continue caring for a child.  This  care is provided for a short-term basis from a few hours to several days.  Respite care can be utilized for foster or adopted children/youth.
