for children aged 3-18 years and adults aged 19 years and over


The Red Roof Retreat Weekend Respite program offers individuals with special needs a safe and fun experience while their families and caregivers get a much needed break. Two children enjoy life on The Ranch and three adults enjoy life at Kevan's House each weekend.


Our program includes time on the farm, community outings and a variety of appropriate activities based on each child’s needs and interests.

Respite spots are available for children ages 3 to 18 and adults aged 19+ (providing they are clients previously enrolled with us). The staff-to-child/youth ratio is 5 clients and 2 staff.

As we are a charity not funded by the government, we are unable to provide one-on-one support. Clients who require one-to-one support due to severe behavioural issues, should get in touch with Contact Niagara.

Cost is $200 for children and $275 for adults per weekend. (subject to change with notification.) 

Receipts will be issued upon payment and can be submitted to Special Services at Home for reimbursement.
