The mission of the Domus Pacis Family Respite is to offer individuals, who are on a challenging medical journey, a homelike environment that encourages interaction with other family members and caregivers in a comfortable and peaceful surrounding. The goals of the organization are to facilitate a “no regrets” week that provides a lovely home in a resort area, a 24/7 contact/welcoming/support person, travel logistics, and discounts for various Summit County establishments and activities.
Domus Pacis Family Respite relies entirely on the mountain resort community of Summit County in Colorado to lend their peaceful properties to comfort families overwhelmed by the struggles of cancer. These generous folks can assist us in complementing our currently small inventory of available housing.
Others can donate financially so families can experience some of the activities that will truly create memories, contribute voucher/discounts to stores, restaurants and events, help with travel expenses and provide support for the organization’s program management necessary to fulfilling the mission most efficiently and effectively.
Just as key is the need for members of the community to volunteer to assist our respite families by being the family’s “neighbor” during their respite week.
Whatever form assistance takes, please know that the Board, as well as the family you supported in their most needy time, are grateful for your commitment to our mission!
