Collaborations

We collaborate with many local entities. 

Local Counseling Agencies – Per our agreement, each entity reserves capacity at a special rate for families in our program. 

  • Agape Counseling Services of West Texas 
  • Samaritan Counseling Services of West Texas 
  • Center for Children and Families

Local Nursing Agencies – Per our partnership, they provide in-home respite for families, nurses for respite night, CNAs and other medically trained professionals we utilize as room leaders and sitters for various respite functions. 

  • Nurses Unlimited/Texas Home Health an ACCENTCARE, Inc. Company 
  • Ascend National Healthcare Staffing  

Baylor School of Medicine – This group provides speakers at a Genetics Conference/Resource Fair we host.  When funding permits, Baylor contacts us to schedule, provide the venue, promote, and find related area resource partners.

Sibling Support Project – This is the nonprofit organization that oversees Sibshop programs both nationally and internationally.  We follow their guidelines and curriculum.  Our staff is certified to facilitate this program.  We can also train other facilitators.   

Local NICUs – We support parents as they receive news and begin the process of accepting new realities for their children and families.  We also help families connect with other local resource providers.   

  • ORMC 
  • MCH 
  • MMH 

First Christian Church – First Christian Church in Midland helped start the small respite program which grew into SHARE, a standalone 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  As their gift to the community, they allow SHARE to use their facility for Friday night respite, trainings, meetings, sibling gatherings, family celebrations, and every other special event that takes place in Midland.   

Crossroads Fellowship – When SHARE was looking to expanded respite care services to Odessa, Crossroads Church was eager to jump on board.  They allow SHARE to use their facility for Friday night respite, trainings, meetings, sibling gatherings, family celebrations, and every special event that takes place in Odessa.   

Region 18 Education Service Center – Although we have no formal agreement, Region 18 has been a great partner each year to help with Crisis Prevention Intervention Training for our staff and room leaders.
