Respite Care and School Holiday Programs for Teens

Ability Connection is committed to helping families who care for teens with disabilities (ages 12-17 years old) residing in Dallas County.

Camp Connections Respite – Care Giver Relief

Starting May of 2021, the Care Giver Relief program, otherwise known as “respite“ will occur alternating Fridays evenings and Saturday days. The program will take place at our main campus at 8802 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas, 75235. Teenagers will enjoy games and other fun activities in a safe environment allowing their caregivers and families a well-deserved break.

Camp Connections School Holiday Program

Ability Connection recognizes the challenges working families with a child with a disability have finding appropriate care on school holidays. Beginning Fall of 2021, Ability Connection will host a School Holiday program on our main campus. Teens from 12-17 will enjoy a day of fun and activities while families are at work. The program will take place on holidays observed by Dallas County school districts calendars.
