DCF Respite Care

The Beacon Achievement Center provides inclusive services and family support for children with special medical, developmental, cognitive and impairment impacted children by offering services that develop their potential and encourage the development of intellectual and social capabilities. 

Everyone needs a break. Respite Care provides caregivers a temporary rest from care giving, while the child continues to receive care in a safe environment. Using respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver.

We believe that through increasing each client's self awareness and empowering their autonomy; interpersonal skills will flourish.  Each child's capacity to communicate effectively will excel and their decision making skills will become instinctive.  Our clients will have fun and feel valued and appreciated as they journey throughout their childhood.
