Daniel Kids

Respite Program

Daniel’s Respite program is a short term, typically 2 week program, that offers a break to families and their youth who are experiencing stressors, family conflict or other situations that may require a stay in one of our licensed, treatment homes before returning back to their own families.  This program was created in partnership with LSF health systems. Youth who attend the Respite program reside in a licensed, specialized therapeutic foster home in the community. These youth attend their home school and remain active in community activities during their stay.

Youth remain open to all mental health services they are currently receiving. Parents pick their youth up to ensure they are attending any mental health and medical appointments that are occurring during their stay. With parents permission youth may continue to receive services from community providers, such as in home therapists/behaviorists, mentors, and life coaches.
