What Is The Respitality Program?

The "hospitality" of local hotels is combined with "respite" care to create respitality"mini-vacations" for parents who have children with special needs. Parents who participate in Respitality receive a gift-certificate for an overnight stay at a local hotel, along with child care funding from UCP, so that they can enjoy a short refreshing break from their demanding daily care routines.

Families who have a member with a disability face some extra challenges on a daily basis. The whole family benefits when the parents or guardians are able to have a short, refreshing time away.

How Does It Work?

Local hotels provide free overnight accommodations and UCP provides a stipend to help pay the costs of child care. Participants are responsible to arrange for child care and to pay for their meals and incidental expenses while they are away.

Who Is Eligible?

Respitality is offered to parents or guardians who have children with any type of disability.

For more information about Respitality, please call UCP at (858) 571-7803 or email us at info@ucpsd.org.
