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.

Our vision at Family Respite Services is that Windsor-Essex is a community where all parents are strong and ALL children belong. Our community is a vital part of welcoming, supporting, and including children with disabilities.
We are very thankful to the hundreds of donors who were part of our recent capital campaign. We are especially thankful to the Solcz Family Foundation for its generous sponsorship. The Solcz Family Foundation respite home was formally opened in July 2022 and is being well-used by children in our community.
We continue to welcome donations and support. These donations are used to provide additional support for children and families. Examples of this are: additional direct hours of one-to-one support for families in crisis, support for children to participate in community camps and recreation programs, and targeted programs such as our “Respitality Program”. If you are in connect with Alexandria Fischer by phone 519-972-9688 x156 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
