A Mother's Rest Charitable Respite Foundation
A Mother's Rest specializes in coordinating therapeutic respite retreats for parents of children with extra needs. We support bio & adoptive moms, dads, and other family caregivers of children and adults with *extra needs*. Our small group bed and breakfast gatherings allow you to get true, recuperative rest to address physiological and mental fatigue. Come recenter and recharge with us.
Our home respite inn and support programs will be located in the Batesville/Afton area of Virginia. Nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley and Virginia’s Wine Country, our respite inn will offer a scenic and inviting experience for year-round guests.
