2021-2022 Overnight Respite Calendar 

As of September 29, 2021, Rising Treetops has resumed its overnight respite program with some modifications due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All ages and disabilities will be considered for placement in all sessionsAs a result of the recent surge with the COVID-19 Delta variant, the emergence of breakthrough cases and the need for booster shots for many of our clients and staff, as well as having significant challenges hiring vaccinated direct care workers willing to quarantine and live at our facility, we will be holding only 12-night and 7-night overnight respite sessions from September 2021 through early June 2022 as follows:

 

Session 1, 2021/22:   9/29/21 to 10/11/21 (THIS SESSION IS COMPLETED)
