During the teleconference, Linda Porter and Hilarie Hauptman from WA State discussed their collaborative work with eight Tribes on an innovative opportunity through a Tribal Respite Grant to develop culturally relevant respite services for Tribal kinship caregivers. They are implementing respite models in collaboration with newly funded Tribal Kinship Navigators. In addition, a collaborative relationship with the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) resulted in a multi-year innovative program to provide respite vouchers for families of children being served through the Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) program.
