St. Matthew Youth Ministry is supporting Respite's Falmouth Road Race Home Edition by creating a team of adults and youth to walk/run in solidarity with the WE ARE RESPITE TEAM
Like a lot of other organizations the past year was about staying afloat. However, the Respite Center knew it had to do more than just get by, they had to continue to support families. And did we ever because We Are Respite! We banded together with creativity and strength and looked for ways to support our families. Not just help families survive but help them thrive during the pandemic.
The Respite Center for the past year has been offering about sixty Zooms a week. These quality Zoom programs provided individuals and their families much needed support during the pandemic. Zooms included games, virtual field trips, book clubs, geography, music events, movie watching parties and so much more. A few months ago the Respite Center went “hybrid” offering limited in person day programming while continuing our Zooms. We are now operating at about 50% for in person adult day programming and the daycare, providing care to infants and toddlers with disabilities, is open. The adult day program continues to slowly and safely expand. We are rebuilding!!
As the Respite Center continues to offer quality programming we need your support. Truth be told, the Respite Center lost a lot of revenue during the pandemic. We essentially lost two Boston Marathonsandl two Micheal’s Runs which. We are Respite! We did come together for the 2020 Falmouth Road Race Home Addition raising over a hundred thousand dollars.
We are rebuilding! We need your help! Team Extra Mile will be walking or running seven miles in seven days during the week beginning August 7th. We hope you can support us by donating to the Respite Center and/or spreading the word about all the wonderful things that are happening at the Respite Center. Thank you!
