A respite family can be thought of as an “aunt and uncle” for children in foster care. They may provide short-term care to give the foster family a needed break or provide care during a personal emergency.
As a respite parent with IntertwinedFamily you would:
Develop a trusted relationship with a child in foster care.
Be able to provide overnight care for a foster family at least one weekend a month.
Be available to provide support to a foster family as needed.
Please send us an Email if you have an interest in becoming a respite family or have questions.
“Our call is to fully love these children while we have them & accept the costs we may incur as worthwhile in terms of the gain they stand to receive.”
