We are a coalition of existing and emerging pediatric respite, palliative, and hospice homes ("Children's Respite Homes of America"), predominantly 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations from across the United States that are bound together through a shared passion that families in our communities critically NEED us.

We believe that by supporting a National "Center of Excellence" Leadership initiative, we can leverage strategic and operational best practices, shape a conceptual framework, facilitate consensus, craft guidance for messaging, and champion evidence-based research that will inform federal and state advocacy priorities to amplify a shared voice and seat at the table for decision making.
