Respite Services

Contact: Dr. Monica Grant, Director

The mission of the Respite Care Program is to provide funding of respite services for children with special health care

needs and their families.  Through a grant from the Office of Genetics and Children with Special Healthcare Needs of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, a limited amount of mini-grant funding is available periodically to defray the cost of respite services. Respite care is consistently identified by families as a key need for coping with the challenges of

raising a child with special needs.
