GCJFS is looking for respite for a 15-year-old girl at least once a week outside of the child’s home to provide time away from her siblings. The family has 4 adopted children in the home. The 15-year-old girl and her younger brother do not get along which causes conflict in the home and they both have mental health diagnoses which attribute to the conflict.

She has a history of argumentative behaviors and physical aggression. In recent months, her physical aggression is “shoving” others out of the way when she is upset. These behaviors have only been seen in group settings but not in one-on-one settings. She has diagnoses that include bipolar and ADHD. Her intellectual IQ is younger than her current age. She is described as girly, loves doing her hair, makeup and nails. She likes playing video games, swimming at the YMCA and loves to paint and draw. Family and Children First Counsel will be paying for this respite.

The provider would need to be willing to become a local vendor through the Geauga County Auditor if they are not already

5-year-old male who has diagnosis of Autism and mental health concerns. He is a very concrete thinker and easily argumentative. He struggles when other people are off task and not doing things he has to do and requires lots of structure and supervision. He gets along well with his siblings but needs to be monitored during interactions. He is highly attention seeking but responds to redirection and ignoring in the home. He will say or intentionally do things to get others upset for attention. He is not physically aggressive within his home; however, he is toward both adults and kids at school, but he has "a lot of empathy" and is able to show remorse for his actions. When angry, he yells and screams, turns red, and at school, he will choke, throw things and hit people.

This young man loves outdoor moving activities; he enjoys swimming, playgrounds, nature play areas and playing on the farm with the animals and working in the barn. He enjoys trying to "fix things" with his toy tools. He is not a huge TV watcher but will watch short video clips on youtube that focus on community helpers. He is obsessed with anything involving a fire truck, ambulance or police officers.  He really enjoys "dance parties" with some fun kid music (floor is lava, go noodles, etc).  He is a big eater, and his favorite food is mac and cheese. He does not love veggies but eats a variety of fruits. Sometimes items like popsicles are "too cold" for him. He loves to make pizza! Lunchables are a special treat along with ice cream. 

He is on a reinforcement schedule(stars/coins/etc). He responds well to the use of a timer.

The family is open to any kind of respite support including:

  • Community based outing support after school (he is home by 2pm from school and could be out in the community after that)
  • Emergency respite support when he is struggling (available at any time)
  • Weekend respite support
  • Five day a week 24 hour out of home respite support, providers would be required to transport to and from school which is in Chardon. School times are 8:45-1:30pm


The funding source is FHBS funds through the County Board, PASS funds through JFS and funds through Family First Council. 



“Fun loving individual looking for HPC assistance getting out in the community (sporting events, movies) and to community events (Special Olympics). I have a waiver so you'll need to be a waiver provider - I am 26, mobile, I love to talk and I live in the Chagrin Falls area. Some of my favorite things to do are go bowling, see new movies, or just staying active. Seeking a 1 on 1 provider to help me out at least 2-3 days a week.”



I’m a friendly 39 year old guy in Montville seeking temporary assistance cleaning and building positive cleaning habits. I would receive funding locally for this HPC service, and I want to build up my self-reliance so I am seeking some sort of help once or twice a week to clean my own living area while learning how best to keep things clean so I will learn to do this independently. Schedule is flexible. I look forward to hearing from you!
