Welcome!

Entering our 19th 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.

Thank You for A Great Marathon Season!

The Respite Center is situated less than a mile from the start of the Boston Marathon in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. Every year tens of thousands of runners converge on our doorstep and get ready for their 26.2 mile trip into Boston. We are lucky enough to have a group of those runners raise money for Respite each year.
