Our Philosophy

We believe that a child with a disability is a child first and that his or her challenges are secondary. With this mission and philosophy in mind, Respite Care strives to create an interactive, stimulating and safe environment that addresses the physical, emotional, social and mental needs of each individual child.

Our History

Respite Care, Inc. was founded in April 1981 by a group of five parents who all had a child with a developmental disability. These parents responded to their own needs, with a realization that other families were experiencing the same challenges. After a year of planning and preparation, Respite Care opened its doors in April 1982. Today, Respite Care provides programs and services for over 150 families in Larimer County and delivers more than 59,000 hours of care annually. We provide before and after school care, enhancement programs, overnight, vacation and crisis care up to 14-days for families in need.
