Respite RESOURCES FOR Caregivers
We’ve partnered with organizations and companies who offer respite and retreats for caregivers.
The Lucas Project
The Lucas Project supports caregivers by providing recognition and respite. We believe that society is full of compassionate and kind individuals who want to help caregivers; however, if they don’t know what our needs are, they can’t help. Recognition is the first hurdle, and the second involves providing tangible relief for the families through respite options.
We Are Brave Together
The heart of We Are Brave Together, an international community of caregiving moms, is to strengthen, encourage, educate and inspire all moms of children with disabilities through their unique and difficult caregiving journeys. To be a caregiving mom is to be a mother who cares for a child or adult child with any type of challenge: medical, mental, behavioral, genetic, developmental, psychiatric, learning, cognitive, or physical. The We Are Brave Together community is woven with one common thread: we are here to support and strengthen one another, and increase our mental health amidst chronic hardship. We offer support groups, (virtual and in-person), retreats, retreat scholarships, and, our Brave Together Podcast, which is a library of inspiration, stories, and resources.
Rising Above Ministries offers support and encouragement for the entire special-needs family. Through a weekly podcast, resources for the family, a free app, and retreat events, Rising Above seeks to be a source of inspiration to families impacted by disability all over the world.

Take Care Time
Caregivers need respite too. Caregiving is the most unappreciated and thankless job in the world. That’s why we created the TakeCareTime respite box. It’s a bi-monthly subscription for caregivers to enjoy some much-needed time for themselves. With each box, you’ll get a bi-monthly supply of caregiving respite time essentials like books, soaps, puzzles, and more that are perfect for you to enjoy during your time away from caregiving. Our boxes are curated by caregivers, for caregivers, and packed with love! Learn more at takecaretime.com.
