With the state of the economy in California, it is no wonder that MANY families who have the responsibility of caring for their loved ones are struggling.  For some, being able to take a much needed break is out of their budget completely.

We are asking for your financial assistance to help us sponsor our clients for either our annual BIG Trip or for our Recreation Dances (monthly) or for an extra weekend or two at one of our Respite Weekend Programs.

$20 buys a Recreation Event.

$150 buys a Respite Weekend Night.

$500 can make a BIG Trip a reality!

Please make your ongoing contribution today!

Special Events

When a caregiver gets a good nights' rest, everybody benefits. Our Weekend Respite program serves the whole family.

This is effective immediately.
