Family Respite Services welcomes families to inquire about respite supports by completing the self referral form or by calling our office. Telephone: 519-972-9688
A Family Coordinator will contact you to talk about coordination of respite supports for your child. This might include assistance with applying for programs such as Special Services at Home. Family Respite Services coordinates support and provides short breaks that strengthen families and contribute to children having meaningful lives in our community. There may be a waiting time for funding for support, but we will help you to get things started.

Proceeds from this annual event ensure that families receive a much needed short break and children with disabilities have access to invaluable respite programs such as:
- Direct Support in the family home and in the community
- Access to Friday night or Saturday community centre programs with trained staff to accommodate children with exceptionalities and modify activities
- The opportunity to register for summer day camp at community centres throughout Windsor and Essex County.
- Respite support for children with physical disabilities
These programs are not funded by the government, so every dollar raised will ensure that we can ignite our vision: a community where families are strong and all children belong.
Thank you on behalf of the families and children.
