The desire to make a difference in the world is universal across all faith traditions and many countries.
If what you’ve seen on our website, or experienced through our services has been meaningful and inspiring to you and you want to make a difference, we invite you to make a gift to The Respite.
We have invested a great deal of our financial resources and sweat equity to make our dream of helping people navigate grief a reality….and yet we cannot do it alone. We need your support.
Your gift will provide the support needed to offer these life changing programs for members of our community who are suffering….and even some who are questioning whether life is worth living.
The Respite’s social justice commitment is to provide services to everyone, regardless of socio-economic status. To this end, we provide scholarships for those who cannot afford to pay our full fees.
On behalf of all of us and our clients at The Respite, we thank you.

Watch The Respite's Music Video!
In honor of the Butterfly Fund campaign and to serve as inspiration, Cindy Ballaro, one of The Respite’s co-founders, created a music video singing Martina McBride’s Anyway. The message of this song is to go for your dreams, no matter the outcome…do it anyway. This is one of the highly valued philosophies at The Respite.
