Become A Friend
When you give of yourself wholeheartedly to your friends, you get back much, much more in return. Together we are better. That’s what friends are for.
Friends of Respite was established in 2002 by a circle of caring individuals who wanted to make a real difference in the lives of children with special needs. Each year the circle grows. Today, Respite Care is touching the lives of more children than ever before. We couldn’t do this without the help of our good friends, the many who continue to present the gifts of hope to our children. The hope for a better life. A life without fear of harm. A life where you don’t go to bed with an empty tummy. A life where you are surrounded by people who love you.
Whether you’re a new friend––or renewing your membership––we truly hope you’ll be a Friend of Respite. Your gift will help make a difference each and every day as we provide the specialized care for children who have been harmed and need the safe haven of our emergency shelter. Your gift will also support the cost of care for children who have loving parents, but not the financial resources needed to care for their child with special needs.
We also ask that you consider the gift of membership for your friends, family members, and business associates. The cost of membership is minimal. The difference it makes, however, is priceless.
