“David comes once a week and plays checkers with dad. Not only does this give my mom a break, but it helps dad with his thought processing. David does an awesome job, which we appreciate so much,” shares a daughter of one of our respite care families.

This experience is enriching for both the volunteer and the person needing visitation.
