Presentation Date: Wednesday, October 18, 2017
Families who have children with disabilities often struggle to find high quality respite care. This webinar described partnerships between JFK Partners (CO UCEDD), the Respite Coalition of Colorado, and Night Lights, LLC, a non-profit that delivers respite care in several congregations. They highlighted how this collaboration evolved and the results from a survey of faith communities regarding their readiness to include respite in their ministries/programs.
Speakers: Eric J. Moody (JFK Partners), Val Saiz (Respite Coalition of Colorado), and Kristen Steadman of Nightlights (a respite program operated out of several congregations).
