The Breakroom Project

The SC Respite Coalition and the SC Department on Aging began the Breakroom Project in 2019. Breakrooms are spaces within worship areas equipped to accommodate those with special needs. The intent is for caregivers to be able to attend worship activities while their loved one is cared for onsite. In addition to allowing the caregiver to have respite time, the loved one can be a part of the worship community and participate in activities. Currently, Breakrooms have been established in five churches across the state, with plans in the works for more.
