Raffle Benefits

The good folks at Little Angels are back again for their 23rd Annual Run!

In 1958, Pat Wasmond, a registered nurse and mother of eleven, worked in a local doctor’s office. This doctor had a child who was severely handicapped, requiring 24 hour care. His family had difficulty managing this challenging situation. Pat offered her assistance and the child came to live with Pat, Bob and their children. Word spread in the Elgin area of this exceptional family and the wonderful care this child was receiving. Soon calls poured into the Wasmond home from other families seeking help. It became evident to Pat there was a vital call for this type of care in the Elgin area. She and her husband bought the house next to their own and created a home for children with profound disabilities. Little Angels was founded. It all began with one family taking a child into their home.

And now, 50 years later, Little Angels has grown into a 57 bed skilled care home. It remains owned and operated by the Wasmond family. In the 1970s, Pat and Bob’s daughter Shelley became involved in the facility on a full-time basis and took over as Executive Director in 1979. Shelley, an RN, worked at Little Angels most of her life in one capacity or another, as did her ten brothers and sisters. This background gave her a unique perspective on all aspects of delivering quality care. Under Shelley’s guidance, Little Angels strives to deliver the finest services possible-from administrative duties to resident care to housekeeping and laundry.

In 1963, the parents and families of Little Angels banded together and formed the Little Angels Parents Association for Retarded Citizens, a 501 (c)(3) organization. Recently this organization underwent a name change and is now the Little Angels Center for Exceptional Care. The Board of Directors of the Little Angels CEC is comprised primarily of parents and guardians. Membership is open to all family members and legal guardians. The purpose of this group is to support one another and raise funds for necessary equipment and services for Little Angels that are not covered by Medicaid.  The Little Angels CEC also owns and operates the Cathy Freeman Center for Developmental Training which is adjacent to Little Angels.
