When requesting respite, please call or email your Respite Coordinator at least a week in advance. CFSF will always try to fill your respite request… but the longer the notice, the better the chance!
Respite for any foster child must be called in to your Respite Coordinator. If you are asked by another foster parent, agency or a state worker to provide respite for a child, please contact your Respite Coordinator prior to accepting.
When your foster child goes to a respite home be sure to supply that home with medication, medication log, HSSP, the Consent To Transport Form and any other information you feel is important. And please make every effort to discuss drop-off/pick-up times and adhere to those times. If you will be late, call the respite provider.
