As parents of a special needs child, you know how difficult it is to find time for yourself. Time to run errands, or to spend time with your spouse for a night or a weekend, or just time for yourself to relax.  As a group, parents of special needs children are more stressed, and even more at risk for divorce, or worse .  Respite is something that parents of special needs children desperately need, and YourRespite can help make it happen. YourRespite provides childcare for your special needs children, in your home, up to age 19.
