Entering our 17th year, The Michael Lisnow Respite Center is a place that provides emotional and physical support for individuals with disabilities and their families.
Located in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, the Center serves hundreds of families. We can not do this without the generous support of many, and the inspiration given to us by the life and memory of Michael Carter Lisnow.
We ask that you take a moment to read Michael's story, view our efforts through images in our photo gallery, and learn about the programs we have available. We believe that the true legacy of Michael is not just the house itself, but it is the wisdom he continues to inspire in us and the strength to help change lives.

Michael’s Run 2014
Saturday October 18th will be the 17th annual Michael's Run 5K held on the Hopkinton Common. Join us for a special day of fun, music and food.
Once a year in the spring, some of the best local musicians gather together and perform a special night of music for the Respite Center. On June 9, 2014 we held our 10th Annual Coffeehouse, and this was our best night yet.
