Gio’s Garden is a therapeutic respite center for children ages birth through six years old with special needs. As of October 2014, Gio’s Garden has provided over 7,300 hours of therapeutic respite care to 50 different children since it opened in June of 2012. This summer Gio’s Garden expanded its programming beyond respite care to include individual therapy and group sessions. Not only does Gio’s Garden focus on the care of the child, but also the well being of the whole family.

Our son has made new friends and provides a place where he is “in charge.” Gio’s Garden has provided us with a new family where we are welcomed and people who understand what our lives are like. We are grateful everyday for Gio’s Garden.”
