community respite services

YAS provides respite to at-risk families in the community through our Family Foster Homes as well as our Therapeutic, or Treatment, Homes. 

Community Respite Services are designed to provide families/caregivers a safe place in the community that offers relief during difficult times, including emergency situations. The goal of our Respite Program is to prevent children from being placed in foster care or another higher level of care.

Typically, Community Respite Services are provided at times when other types of services are not available such as evenings and weekends. YAS has both short term and long term respite options for children and teens.
