The need for safe, quality childcare, so that parents can take much needed breaks, is fundamental. The lack of safe, affordable respite opportunities is the number one 'need' brought up by special needs parents. The PCSN Ministry is working on ways to provide respite for Special Families. Several ideas are under discussion, including short 'Breather-breaks' and longer overnight 'Getaways'. We are especially concerned with respite for single parents, who seldom get the opportunity for a break.
