Local Respite Shelters

Juveniles Arrested for Family Violence Have a Lifetime of Issues

Not only can a family-violence arrest lead to an increased chance of future delinquent behavior, but it creates barriers to education, licensing and employment.

There is another option: A respite shelter—a cool-down” place in a safe environment. In a respite shelter, a child can:
  • Be assessed by a counselor and set goals
  • Remain in assigned school and on track
  • Work on emotional regulation and impulsivity control
Respite shelters in the Manasota areas are as follows:
