THE STORY:

July 30, 2013 is my 65th birthday. If you would like to honor this birthday, might you consider a gift in my honor to The Tennessee Respite Coalition?
The Tennessee Respite Coalition takes care of people who take care of loved ones. Through their Voucher system TRC provides much needed respite to family caregivers and encourages families to feel in control of and empowered to use respite. Family caregivers in Tennessee provided 634 million hours of care last year. Dick and I have custody of our 12 year old grandson who has Fragile X and Autism. We were blessed to be recipients of a voucher from the Tennessee Respite Coalition which allows us the a funds to pay a vetted caregiver to stay with Austin, either overnight or during the day. The Voucher system has provided much needed respite for Dick and me as caregivers and invites us to feel in control of and empowered to use respite. This month (July 2013) we received our second grant. and empowered to use respite. he vouchers are for a set amount and are awarded every 6 months. Care of a special needs child can be stressful and we are so grateful for this time given us by the TRC.
