Provides center-based respite care to families with children with special needs, in foster and adoptive care, and their siblings aged 3 months-6 years.
Since 1995, the RAVE Family Center has touched an astonishing amount of lives. Over 1,000 children, 695 families, and 63,000 direct service volunteer hours have contributed to the success of the RAVE Family Center, with the continuous support of our community partners. The RAVE Family Center’s unique combination of meeting two community needs – youth development and the provision of respite care services – has proven to be a successful partnership. Families receive the gift of time and high school students participate in a program that gives them a positive outlet for their energies, in a positive environment during non-school hours, which helps them develop the skills they need to be successful and responsible adults, and future leaders in our community.
