Become a Respite Care Provider

Why is there a need for respite providers? Foster parents and children are like you, they need rest! We want to support families by giving all members the time necessary to rest, rejuvenate, and engage in self-care practices.

How long will I keep the child? Respite care can be anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of weeks.

Who can provide respite care? A NC licensed foster parent that is 21 years old or older. Don’t worry, we’ll train you!

Are there different types of respite care? Absolutely! Respite care is for children who still live at home with their biological families or with foster parents. Take your pick – we need help for both!

What are my responsibilities? To be the best parent you can be for that child. Provide them with a place where they can feel safe, loved, and valued for a brief period of time, while continuing the therapeutic foster services they need.

Do respite providers receive information about the child? Of course! We want you to be as prepared as you can possibly be to meet the child’s needs. You will be given information on the child such as, their routines, level of supervision required, medicine information, and important contact numbers.
