Foundation Place: Center Based Respite

Parents & Guardians

Respite = a short period of rest or relief from something difficult.

24/7 Parent Hotline: 1-888-435-7553


Foundation Place provides parents/guardians with short-term childcare services at our Brooklyn facility that offer temporary relief, improves family stability, and reduce the risk of undesirable circumstances. Respite can be planned or offered during emergencies and times of crisis. Foundation Place allows parents/guardians to attend outpatient services, schedule appointments for themselves, or simply take time to recharge knowing their child or children are temporarily safe and cared for. Foundation Place is open 24/7 and children aged 0 – 14 can stay with us up to 21 days.
