North American Council on Adoptable Children in collaboration with AdoptUsKids recently co-facilitated a multi-day training on creating Respite Care services. The Collaboration to AdoptUSKids also released “Taking a Break: Creating Foster, Adoptive and Kinship Respite in Your Community,” a comprehensive manual funded through a federal Children’s Bureau Grant.

The manual is available for your use. You can call 1-888-200-4005 to order a copy, with a charge of $20., or go to www.adoptuskids.org to download and customize forms. You can download the entire manual in PDF by going to:
