This passed month, we had the opportunity to support a local organization called Little Friends, Inc. We learned a great deal about what they stand for and everything that they are involved in. It is amazing how much service they provide for adults and children with autism and developmental disabilities not only in Naperville, but in several of the surrounding cities! They truly inspired us!
We ran a promotion here at Dr. Brown’s and all of the proceeds were given to Little Friends. In a few weeks we will have the opportunity to tour their facility and hopefully meet some of the students there!
“Little Friends is a private, non-profit organization serving children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. Based in Naperville, Illinois, Little Friends operates 11 dynamic programs including three alternative schools, family support and consultation services, vocational training programs, community-based residential services and the Little Friends Center for Autism.

All of the staff that we met thus far has been so friendly and wonderful to work with. They are such a great organization to be a part of and volunteer with. Thank you Little Friends for working with us!
