We are pleased to announce that Respite Endowment Organization will formally become part of Little Friends, Inc. as our fifth program area of service to those with autism and other developmental disabilities and their families.  Over the past year, the two organizations have worked together to provide respite services for families with children, ages 5-12, who have special needs.  This has enabled parents and caregivers the ability have personal time to rest and regroup, something that otherwise may not be possible in a typical day.  The program has proven successful and we are excited about the addition of this new service knowing the importance and value we put on providing our families a comprehensive range of support services. 

Becky Pundy, Executive Director for Respite Endowment Organization, will join Little Friends and serve as the Director of the Respite Services program.  We appreciate the legacy and commitment to help families that Becky has created and look forward to together helping more families in the years to come.  In addition to serving children age 5-12, we are expanding the respite program to support older adolescents and their siblings one night a week starting this fall.
