Mission Statement

In Good Company (formerly known as the Respite Care Program) is a program that connects families to other people in our community who can provide help and support.

By establishing and strengthening relationships between families and individual care providers, the program enables parents and other family members to take a break from or to receive help with their day-to-day care-giving responsibilities.

Through personal connections with individual care providers as well as with new friends and allies, people with disabilities can participate more fully and positively in school, work, neighborhood, and community life.
