One of the most valuable gifts you can give:




Respite Care has staffing ratios of one trained staff member for every two to three children. On top of this staffing ratio, we also have Fort Collins volunteers who make sure that while staff members are making sure our children are safe and having their needs met, volunteers are providing one on one engagement like playing games and reading stories. Our volunteers are the "frosting" to our program - they are the extra love and caring that makes Respite Care so special. Our volunteer opportunities vary depending on the season so please reach out to see how you can get involved!
