Respite Care Connection (Enviros)
Respite Care Connection is a specialized program for children and youth with complex needs. Participants must have funding through FSCD (Family Supports for Children with Disabilities), Post Adoptive Supports or Child Intervention.
Respite Care Connection specializes in strengthening participant’s self-esteem, skill development and socialization skills through a fun and safe environment with a ratio of one staff to three youth.
