CMHA WW manages the CHAP worker database part of the www.respiteservices.com website and administers the Community Helpers for Active Participation database.
(CHAP) is a database for families who would like to contract with an Independent Provider. The CHAP Coordinator screens individuals who are interested in supporting people with developmental or physical disabilities. Families who utilize the Independent Model can register and place classified ads so that they can be matched with individuals who are interested in providing support. The CHAP Coordinators search the database for families and send profiles of potential independent providers to registered families.
respiteservices.com assists families of individuals with disabilities to connect with respite options both in and out of home through a Family Registry and a Worker Database, there are also links to resources and information about respite and training available in the community.
