Key Factors for Sustainability of Respite Program, Respite Coalition or Lifespan Respite Systems

Group members shared and discussed the top factors that have influenced their sustainability successes at the respite program, state respite coalition or state systems levels. Top factors include partnerships that developed as a result of coalition building, and a stable source of federal or state government funds. Participants also discussed the pros and cons of coalitions being a free-standing 501(c)3 in terms of being able to diversify funding more easily or reducing bureaucratic layers for decision making.
