Respite in
Community Settings

At Cascade Community Connections, we believe everyone deserves to engage in fun activities and enjoy what their local communities have to offer. Opportunities for play, recreation, and leisure are essential for a full and flourishing life. What do you like to do? Where would you like to go? What would you like to learn?

We are now offering pre-planned or customizable field trips, outings, and community-based respite for small groups. We work with individuals and families to design trips based on your interests and goals. Activities might include Bowling & Pizza in Silverdale, Picnic on the Beach, Dinner & Movie, Wild Waves Theme & Water Park, Nature-Walks, Olympic Game Farm Park, Zoo, Aquarium, or even a Seattle Mariners Game!

About Our Fees

Most of our outings and outing expenses will be covered by your already available respite fund. Rates for these high quality programs and guided group outings are set by the Washington Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) for whom we are a contracted community respite provider. Fees are $18.16 per person per hour. Please check with your case resource manager with the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) to see if you are eligible and have funds available to bill DDA. When registering, you will have the option to self-pay or to instruct us to bill DDA. Fees for each activity/event includes actual care time plus transportation and sometimes other applicable expenses. Your Cascade Team Member will work with you to design activities within your available budget.
