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.

CONGRATULATIONS to Bob Williams for his 30 years of service to PLEA.  Since 1988, Bob has been providing transportation for our PLEA students during the school year and during our summer programs. His smiling face is waiting for the kids every morning and again every afternoon when he  delivers them back home.  Our PLEA families appreciate his tireless efforts in the rain, snow and sunshine as he safely transports their children back and forth to school.  We cannot thank Bob enough for 30 years of dedication to PLEA!
