for Children removed as a result of abuse and neglect
Like other children’s foster shelters, Respite Care of San Antonio's Residential Children's Homes operate 24/7/365 to provide protection and urgent essential needs (shelter, food, clothing, transportation, and care) to children in crisis removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect.
Unlike other shelters, our program is dedicated to serving children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and complex medical conditions. This vulnerable population needs extra resources to overcome the consequences of medical neglect and inadequate care.
