Participation in all respite activities requires a signed understanding of program guidelines.
Overnight Respite Services:
Need a safe home away from home? The best way to access our support is to come stay with us free of charge for up to 8 nights a month. Guests interested in overnight respite also join us for a brief, proactive interview to discuss needs and goals during their stay. Please Note: Unfortunately we are not currently equipped to provide overnight respite to those who are experiencing homelessness.
If you would like to participate in overnight stays please bring the following:
A valid and current government issued i.d. with photo
Option 1: A current lease with your name, address, and dates of lease, or a bank statement (account information redacted) that includes your name, address, and a date within the past 60 days, or government issued mail that includes your name, address, and date within past 60 days.
Option 2: If you are staying with someone who provides you with stable living you can bring any of the above items in option 1, in their name, with a notarized letter stating you are their guest.
Additionally, due to liability, we are unable to provide any services to registered sex offenders. For safety measures, all guests interested in overnight stays will be screened,
phone support (warmline)
You can always reach us by calling our warmline at (352) 559-4559.
A warm-line offers callers an opportunity to speak confidentially with a peer specialist about current struggles. Warmlines are not hotlines in that a warmline may not be answered right away, but if you leave us a voicemail, we will return your call as soon as we can.
If you are in a crisis and are in need of immediate assistance please call the Alachua County Crisis Hotline at (352) 264-6789.
