What Our Parents Say
The staff is always so friendly – they genuinely love what they do, and it shows. It is so refreshing to finally experience an atmosphere where all children are celebrated equally and especially for a parent of a special needs child, that in itself, means the world.
Crystal, Respite Parent
It's amazing. They've given me that sense of comfort. A sense to know that it takes a village and … I've finally found my village
My favorite thing about Respite Care of San Antonio is seeing my child happy to come back every time and achieve new milestones.
What I love about Respite is they put all the kids needs above their own. They focus on helping not just the children but the families as well. I didn’t think I could love a daycare as much as I do this place. We absolutely love it there!
Krizia, mom to Marciano
When I come to Respite Care I know that when I leave my children there that they are in great hands. I know that they're going to get the same love and attention that I would give them if I was at home with them.
What Our Staff Says
When a child completes a goal that has been worked on for a while, it gives me a sense of pride that all children have the ability to learn even if it may take a while longer for some children.
My favorite thing about Respite Care of San Antonio is their mission to protect and love the most vulnerable children in our community.
What I love about RCSA is greeting the parents and listening to them talk about how their child is grown and learning. How staff is loving and understanding with their child.
What Our Former Board Members Say
Respite Care ... heals children who otherwise would be left behind. It is a loving, secure environment for children, many of whom have never had love or security. It makes a difference for so many families with nowhere else to turn.

… Before Respite Care … there was no place or persons to provide the necessary care. Now that care exists … and … gives them the strength to carry on into the future to care for their loved ones with extraordinary needs
Respite Care was so important to me because … I was the one who was blessed by being a part of such a compassionate mission … My memories of Respite remind me always of the fragility of life but also of the courage and strength of the angels put in the care of the amazing Respite team. May God continue to bless them all.
Seeing the faces of the kids, seeing them on the playground, hearing the sounds of joy and laughter, and knowing what they’ve been through…that makes it special. The chance to not only help those in need, but to see lives changed. The love, healing and growth that happens at Respite Care is something to behold.
I remember that there was one story of one particular child that truly touched me; it left me in tears. And it was so obvious that Respite Care was doing essential work that wasn’t being duplicated by any other organization …
