PLEA’s roots are founded in the hope to make a difference for individuals and families dealing with autism, mental health issues and developmental difficulties by providing quality services and supports. For over fifty years, since the first program was instituted, the legacy of the founders to provide help continues to drive the current board and staff. The constant emphasis on developing and delivering strength-based, effective, resilient and recovery oriented programs is the hallmark of the footprint left on the community by PLEA.
