Wyoming Valley Catholic Youth Center
Planned Respite Program
In collaborative partnership with Luzerne County Mental
Health and Developmental Services (LCMHDS), and the LCMHDS System of Care, center is operating a planned respite program for children ages 5 - 13, who are actively receiving mental health services. The program will provide care to families in Luzerne County who do
not have resources or natural supports to assist in caring for a child. Program will provide a temporary relief for parents or caregivers giving them the ability to relieve stress, restore energy and look after their own well-being. During respite the child can expect to relax and enjoy child centered activities in a well
supervised setting. The children will participate in regular CYC age-appropriate programming along with other CYC participants. Activities will be held in CYC child care classrooms, gymnasiums, playgrounds, outdoor park and swimming pool. Educational and social programs
will be all inclusive with respite participants. Children will be incorporated into our existing school age childcare program. Meals will be provided each day. Breakfast, afternoon snack and dinner will be provided to all participants.
