THE MICHAEL LISNOW RESPITE CENTER wrote -
The Respite Center is a place that provides services for children and adults with disabilites. We have several programs which include our Adult Day Program, Weekend Respite, After School Care, Day Care (birth - 3yrs), Employment Support for Individuals with Disabilities and Residential Placements. As we begin 2016, our 17th Boston Marathon, our goal is to continue to increase respite and support services for families trying to survive the challenges of raising a child with disabilities.
Last year the Respite Center raised just over $600,000 with a team of 75 runners. These funds made it possible to grant scholarships and also provide over 40,000 hours of service to families in need.
