You love your child 24/7. But thanks to our Respite program, it doesn’t have to be a 24/7 job. Available for 46 weekends a year, our Respite program allows you to confidently put your loved one in our care so you can take time to care for yourself.
Like all of SOAR365’s programs, our Respite program gives your loved one more than a place to go. It gives them a place to grow. And thrive. And be challenged. And really, really have a good time.
While in our care, your loved one will be doing these sorts of things
Discovering new ways to express him or herself through art, music and other creative outlets
Trips to restaurants, museums, movies, libraries and parks
Swimming and bowling
Getting nutrition counseling and medication management
Acquiring important social skills
Do something great for yourself—and your family member. Take advantage of SOAR365’s Respite program

Your donation does so much
Respite is one of the most desperately needed services for families of individuals with disabilities. Sadly, the reimbursement rates are so low that few providers offer it. But SOAR365 (as is often the case) is different. But it’s a costly decision. Every weekend we’re open, we operate at a $14,000 deficit. Your donation helps us recover some of that money.
