Charlotte Deleste Gio’s Garden Foundation
Deleste founded a nonprofit organization in honor of her older son In June 2012. The foundation ensures families are provided with up to 16 hours of therapy/respite care a month free of charge. In addition, it helps connect parents to other critical resources in the area.
The organization which is a nonprofit was inspired by their son. This is when at 2 months old their son started showing signs of childhood epilepsy called Lennox Gastaut Syndrome. Therefore, he needs care around the clock, and in addition, he was also diagnosed on the autism spectrum and is unable to communicate with words.
Deleste and her husband found they were only qualified for public respite care only one hour a day, five days a week. It is then that she founded the organization to assist parents of special-needs children.
