A Mother's Rest is a network of non-profit, respite retreat inns created exclusively to serve mothers & other caregivers of loved ones with disabilities.   AMR coordinates  affordable, 3-night bed and breakfast respite retreats, providing caregivers with adequate time to decompress in an intimate, therapeutic environment.  This extended in-person fellowship with other parents who "get it" simply can not be duplicated in on-line Facebook groups.  As a non profit, we plan these retreats all over the country, year-round.  With the help of generous inn discounts, corporate sponsorship, small business support, church and civic group donations, and individual giving, we make these trips affordable to ALL parents.  

 

A Mother's Rest serves all parents & caregivers across the entire spectrum of "extra needs".   "Extra needs" includes all children, not just those with birth defects or developmental delays.    We support special needs parents, all adoptive/foster moms,  wives of wounded veterans, special educators, and those caring for their own elderly, infirm parents at home.
