My son Omari is a young adult with special needs who has been blessed by receiving respite care services from City Access New York.
The Respite Programs provide positive experiences for my son where he is taken on trips to the movies, basketball games, shows, amusement parks, restaurants and other opportunities for the socialization he needs to become part of the community.
When parents learn that their child has a disability, it has a profound effect on the entire family. Every hour of every day is filled with concerns on whether or not their child’s needs are being met. What these programs provide is a much needed break so that the caregivers can devote their precious time to themselves and their families.
We thank the caring staff at City Access New York for their dedication, devotion and support they give our son Omari, and all the children every single day. We don’t know what we would do without you!!
