National Respite Locator Service - Provider Portal

The National Respite Locator Service (NRLS) helps parents, family caregivers, and professionals find respite services in their state and local area to match their specific needs. The NRLS lists primarily home care or community-based agencies that provide respite care.  Respite is defined as planned or emergency care provided to a child or adult with special needs in order to provide temporary relief to family caregivers who are caring for that child or adult.

The NRLS is a service of the ARCH National Respite Network, a program of Families and Communities Rising. It is made available at no cost to family caregivers and professionals who assist them, and to providers listing their respite care services. Funding for this service is provided through generous donations from members of the ARCH National Respite Network and others, with partial support from a cooperative agreement with the Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

If you find that a listing is out of date or no longer providing respite care, please contact ARCH.
