Hourly Respite provides temporary support to a child/youth with emotional and/or behavioral disturbances. LUK’s Hourly Respite services are responsive to the needs of families; are reliable and flexible; and strengthen families, children and youth. Hourly Respite reduces family stress; establishes, supports, and maintains family stability; increases family and individual safety; and minimizes the need for out-of-home placement.
LUK provides three types of Hourly Respite services:
- Home-based Respite: A trained respite worker comes to the family’s home on a specified day and time and provides the services in the family’s home
- Community-Based Respite: A trained respite worker comes to the family’s home on a specified day and time and takes the child/youth and his/her siblings into the local community to do an activity
- Center-Based Respite: A safe and secure site where the family has the option of dropping off or having their child/youth and his/her siblings picked-up on a specified day and time to do an activity at the facility.
