Families caring for a loved one with special needs have enough to worry about in their everyday lives and they need to be in control of who supports them! We are here to help. We hire someone the family already knows and trusts, or we recruit someone for the family to interview, and then we take care of all the payroll wages, taxes, insurance, and employee withholding. After all…
Respite Should be Relaxing, Not Taxing!

* WELCOME VOUCHER RESPITE and FMS FAMILIES!! Switching your respite to CISS is very easy. You can still request agency respite services if that will best meet your needs, and have the Fiscal Management Service (FMS) manage your daycare payments! Know your rights. Click here for more info from Disability Rights CA.
Please give us a call and we will walk you through the process. You will still be in control of who provides your respite and when you get support. All of the required 1-time forms can be found on our Forms page, printed, completed, and faxed over to us. Within a week of receiving all completed forms, your caregiver will become employed by CISS and may be eligible for mileage reimbursement (which was not allowed under voucher respite). You will only have to sign their timesheet! Whereas other agencies only pay $9.50/hr, CISS pays $11.00/hr PLUS mileage, and our Enhanced Respite program staff start at $13.00/hr. We also give merit increases after 2 years and 4 years with the company. No other Respite organization does this!
