To explore potential strategies to provide caregiver support for individuals and families caring for abused and at-risk children in Wisconsin, the Respite Care Association of Wisconsin (RCAW) and the University of Wisconsin (UW) Oshkosh, Center for Community Development, Engagement, and Training (CCDET), recently collaborated to design a forum to gather input from individuals currently working in the respite care industry in this state. 

Specifically, the project sought to solicit professional expertise and insights to identify gaps and needs related to how respite care can support families in crisis. The ultimate objective was to cultivate specific ideas on program development dedicated to families in crisis to minimize the impact on children at risk of abuse or neglect.
