    Subject: RESPITE SERVICES- FUNDING RUNS OUT JUNE 30TH

    Please spread the word that respite service funding through the Department of Behavioral Health ends on June 30th. If family members wish to use their own respite provider, the necessary child abuse, criminal background checks and FBI check will have to be provided, but will be reimbursed by DBH. The reimbursement will come from the respite funds, but must be spent by June 30th.

    Some families may already have someone in mind to provide respite who has all the required clearances (eg. teaccher or child care worker) in which case , they should let DBH know as soon as possible what date they plan to use respite services.

    I have attached the respite forms -- Please circulate far and wide.

    Thank you,
    Val(See attached file: Respite Guidelines 2010.doc)(See attached file: Respite parent registration form final 2010.doc)
