Colorado Respite Coalition, a program of Easterseals ColoradoFIND RESOURCES
The Colorado Respite Coalition (CRC) is a network of families and community partners who have joined together to support Colorado families who are caring for individuals of all ages with any special health care needs. We believe that family caregivers need a break and deserve our support. The CRC understands the unique joys and challenges that family caregivers face. We strive to improve respite access and awareness across the state.
The CRC is housed at the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Easterseals Colorado, which partners with individuals and families to reduce the impact of disability or health challenges and to enhance quality of life. The CRC is primarily funded by state and federal grants, with oversight by the Colorado Department of Human Services - State Unit on Aging.

Learn from experts in the caregiving field, including sessions on understanding dementia, supporting children with disabilities, and resources available to family caregivers. There will be a series of speakers during the webinar. Participants will have an increased understanding of the caregiving journey.
Community Grant request for proposals (RFP) is officially open!
The Colorado Respite Care Program periodically awards Community Grants to qualified for-profit, nonprofit agencies or governmental entities currently providing respite services.
This program is an effort to respond to the respite care needs of Colorado's family caregivers of individuals with special needs, chronic conditions, older adults, foster children and kinship relations and more. Organizations will be awarded funds to support families in need of respite care.
In response to the need for greater training consistency and guidance, the CRC produced a Respite Training Toolkit for providers.
This toolkit provides general information on recommended trainings and steps that agencies can take to ensure they are meeting all training necessary.
