The program is currently operating out of our beautiful campus in Atco, New Jersey. The purpose of respite is to give the primary caregiver(s) some time away from caring for their family member with a Developmental Disability. Primary caregivers provide transportation to and from the program which operates from 1pm to 5pm on most Saturdays. When possible, one Saturday each month we have an extended day, usually from 10am to 5pm so caregivers can have an extended respite period.
