South Carolina Respite Coalition

About South Carolina Respite Coalition

We are a non-profit organization formed in 2001 whose mission is to educate family caregivers of the necessity and benefit of regular, short breaks from providing 24/7 care for a family member who lives in their home, i.e. respite. We also advocate for increased funding so family caregivers can hire someone to stay with their loved one while the family caregiver takes a break.

“I enjoyed being able to work hands on and develop a connection with the youth. Especially within the special needs community. I love making them smile and creating a happy, calm experience for them when we’re together. I also enjoyed being able to take him to therapy. Since I am in college to be a occupational therapist specifically working with special needs children, being able to see the positive difference made within him after every session reminded me how much I can’t wait to do that for other children too! ”
