Welcome To Respite Care Services, Inc.

Respite Care Services Inc. is a Not-for-Profit agency in business since 1981 developing persons with developmental disabilities for over 43 years.

The Agency was started by a group of concerned parents who secured a grant from the Lake County Commissioners to conduct a survey of what could become a support system for this population. From this effort the agency evolved and has grown to servicing over 100 consumers with developmental disabilities in a wide variety of supports and services.

Respite Care Services, Inc. provides services to individuals on an Indiana Medicaid Waiver. In addition, RCS, Inc. receives funding from private donations, grants, and fundraising to deliver quality services.
