    GIVE PARENTS A BREAK Program

    Military families are subject to unique stressors associated with military life, including deployments, remote tours of duty, and extended working hours. The Navy Child & Youth Programs (CYP) "Give Parents a Break (GPAB)" program is designed to give family members a short break from parenting in order to help them deal with these types of stressful situations. The GPAB program is designed to standardize respite care at all installations operating CYP programs. Below are the varying options for utilization of GPAB.

    Who is Eligible?

    The family of a Fallen Warrior is authorized 40-hours of respite care to be taken at one-time during the year after the member's death. The family should be able to provide a copy of the death certificate or verification from the command. However, in order to not place undue burden on the family, verification can be provided by the Navy Gold Star program.

    Families who meet the criteria and have been identified by the command can receive up to 16 hours of free childcare monthly. Please download and complete the Give Parents A Break Referral Certificate below to request free childcare from your command.

    If you do not meet the requirements for free care through GPAB, your child is still eligible for care through CYP at the Hourly Care rate. Hourly Care may be utilized through each of the CYP programs; Child Development Centers, Child Development Homes, Youth Programs, as well as the GPAB schedule below.

    Category 4/5 EFMP families may be eligible for up to 40 hours of free respite childcare each month. This service is provided through Child Care Aware. Families seeking this service can visit the Child Care Aware EFMP Respite www.naccrra.org or call Child Care Aware at 1-800-424-2246.

    In support of Give Parents a Break, centers are open for care in the evenings at no cost for qualifying military families, and at the Hourly Care rate for all other eligible CYP patrons who wish to utilize, on a space available basis. Families requesting childcare should contact the center directly. Commands requiring childcare for official functions must utilize spaces made available through these evening hours.
