The North Carolina Respite Care Coalition is a grassroots network of parents, family caregivers and professionals in the field of respite care as well as government funding representatives and others from across the state who have an investment in family support services. The mission of the North Carolina Respite Care Coalition is to promote and support a statewide quality intergenerational respite care system.

The coalition began in 1997 with a small group of people interested in forming a network and making respite care known and available to all in our state who need it. Today NCRCC operates as a program of Easter Seals UCP North Carolina.
Respite care can be needed at any time by anyone, across the lifespan. From a parent who needs care for their child while they are hospitalized to a spouse who needs relief from the constant care of an Alzheimer's patient, there are many instances in which respite care can help a stressful situation.
