We're here to help, Let's talk
*Families do not have to be current or past Jessie’s Centre participants in order to access this service.
Jessie’s Respite Care Program is a program that lets parents, under the age of 25, take a temporary, overnight break (usually over a weekend), knowing that their child(ren) is/are being looked after in a safe environment by a qualified caregiver.
It can be used to access emergency medical care, to look for housing or move to a new home, study for exams, catch up on sleep, prepare for the birth of a new baby, celebrate a birthday, do laundry, or just to take a break!
“I was able to get a much-needed break through this program, and now look forward to it every few months. It makes me feel secure and happy to know that my son is staying with someone who he feels safe with. I pick him up knowing he has always been in good hands.” – Participant
