Easterseals Arc of Northeast Indiana has been awarded a $1,500 grant from the Benevolence Committee of Plymouth Congregational Church to support respite services.
Respite services provide a break for caregivers of individuals with disabilities, and Easterseals Arc is the only provider in Allen County with a house dedicated to respite services.

The respite house serves individuals with a wide range of ages, abilities and needs, providing temporary care in a home-like atmosphere supported by trained, certified staff.
