OC United’s RESPITE program provides resources, education, and support for parents through respite and interventions for trauma-sensitive environments. Over 50% of foster parents stop fostering their first year. The challenges are unique and often overwhelming. To meet this need OC United created their RESPITE program (Resources, Education, and Support for Parents | Interventions for Trauma-Sensitive Environments). RESPITE provides support groups, parent trainings, date nights, wellness classes, and trauma trainings to foster, adoptive, and kinship families. We also provide trainings, tools, and classroom interventions to support trauma-sensitive classrooms and educational environments.
