This document consists of a combination of two separately published fact sheets, one on crisis nursery care for children at risk of abuse or neglect and one on respite care for families of children with disabilities or chronic illness. The fact sheet on crisis nursery care presents background information on the federal role in developing crisis nursery programs; a definition of crisis nursery care; and descriptions of a crisis nursery facility, a day care facility, a crisis shelter, multiple community sites, and in-home programs. Three references and names and addresses of two resource organizations are provided. The fact sheet on respite care begins with an outline of federal funding for respite care demonstration projects, and then offers a definition of respite care and descriptions of seven program models: in-home respite model, host family model, facility-based model, residential respite model, respite house model, parent cooperative model, and "respitality" model. The fact sheet concludes with three references and names of two resource centers. (JDD)
