David’s Refuge provides a place of respite free of charge for parents and guardians who care for children with special needs or life threatening medical conditions, allowing them the much needed time to rest, reflect and recharge from the stress of full-time caregiving.
As our guests you will enjoy the beauty, hospitality and relaxation of a personally designed retreat in a luxurious Bed & Breakfast, where meals, recreation, and opportunities for ‘unplugging’ are generously provided. Our goal is to provide a place of respite from the demands of caring for your children and family so you can be restored, refreshed, and revived.

David’s Refuge will provide you the respite you need to press on in loving and caring for your children.
It isn’t possible to talk about self-care for family caregivers without talking about respite. More than any other service, respite or a break is what family caregivers want most. The primary purpose of respite care is to provide relief from the extraordinary and intensive demands of ongoing care to someone with special needs, thereby strengthening the family’s ability to provide care. Respite care is planned and proactive. Suzanne Mintz, President and Co-Founder of the National Family Caregivers Association
Parenting a child with special needs is demanding. As a result of this stress, marriages fail, families crumble, and very often hope is lost. During your stay at David’s Refuge you will be pampered, encouraged, and reminded that you are not alone, that God loves you, and that what you do really matters.
