The group meets on a monthly basis and is open to anyone whose partner is away due to a work-related separation. Check out our events calendar for upcoming dates and times. Respite Child Care We also offer three consecutive hours of subsidized child care each month for families with children ages 0-12, who are experiencing a work-related separation. A work-related separation includes courses, taskings, IR, exercises as well as time in the field or overseas. A Family Information Form must be completed to verify that your partner is deployed. Subsidized care will not be accessible until a form has been completed, and the unit has verified a deployment. Registration MUST be completed on-line. Please note: the registration process may take up to 15 minutes to complete, but you will not have to complete it again for subsequent months.
