Respite Care is temporary care provided so that the parent or other caregiver may receive a break from the responsibilities of care giving. The mission of the respite services is to reduce stress associated with the responsibilities of caring for children and to strengthen family and community relations by reducing the stress of parenting. The Jackson County Family Resource Center currently is the only agency providing respite to the seven western counties (Haywood, Jackson, Macon, Swain, Clay, Cherokee, and Graham). The Jackson FRC currently serves over 200 families with respite services. Click here for more information.
