Typically respite at this location is the first and third Fridays of the month. Dates are subject to change and additional dates may be added as the program grows.

Please contact Kathleen Smith and Becki Kreiser by 5pm Wednesday if you plan to attend. Kathleen at and Becki at E-mail is the preferred method, however if that is not convenient, you can call Kathleen at 717.737.3477.

Some weeks are busier than others. We will let you know as soon as possible when your family member has been added to the list. You must receive a confirmation in order to attend. A minimum of 8 participants is required to run the program. If we do not have 8 signed up by Wednesday families will be notified that respite has been cancelled that week. We understand that this may make it difficult to plan ahead. I would suggest that “back-up” arrangements be made for events that cannot be changed.

Please remember that respite starts at 6pm and participants must be picked up by 10pm

Funding is available through Cumberland Perry IDD and a grant for members of the Autism Society. Private Pay is accepted as well.
