Helping children and adults with disabilities lead productive, happy lives.
Respitality is a combination of respite and hospitality that offers families who care for a child or adult family member with disabilities a Friday or Saturday night away from their home. The funding for the Respitality Weekends for Parents comes from donations and/or services from local hotels, motels, restaurants, entertainment businesses, foundations, and individuals.
For 24 hours, Parents/Caregivers can enjoy a Relaxing Night Away from the everyday stress of caring for their disabled family member. Respitality Weekend Includes:
A one-night hotel stay
A $50 Stipend provided by Ability Center of Virginia - to help pay for a caregiver of the parents’ choice to care for their family member while they are away
The Program runs from September through May each year. To be eligible to participate, you must have a child or adult family member with special needs living in your home. To request a weekend, please call (757) 497-7474.
We sincerely thank the following Foundations and Businesses for their generous contributions:
