Our vision is to make autism services accessible to all families regardless of financial status, insurance policies, or official diagnosis.

My son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at 2 years old. As a single mother of 2, in the State of Texas where I had no family or friends, receiving such news was life shattering. I went through a series of emotions such as denial, depression, stress, defeat, confusion, guilt, anger, helplessness, but most of all, INADEQUATE. I often wondered, “Is this my fault?”, “How do I fix him?”. I felt that I didn’t know or understand my own child! I felt unequipped and “not good enough” to mother an autistic child. I didn’t understand why God allowed me to take on this burden I knew nothing about. That's where my search for answers, education, and services began.
I went on a Mission Trip with my church and other Single Parents (who were all strangers) and learned they've all raised or worked with Special Needs Children! It seemed that in one of the lowest and darkest points in my life, God removed me from my darkness and surrounded me with others who've walked this walk. As we served the poor in Costa Rica, my life was changed, my mind was restored and these folks literally scraped me off the pavement, became my backbone, and held my hand.
My journey led me to my passion for Special Needs kids and their parents. By opening a facility specifically for our autistic children, Im able to speak and understand parent-to-parent, cater to these kiddos that reminds me so much of my own, and give them everything I wish I had for mine. God took our family on a journey- not just for us, but for yours as well. So my goal is to create as many “success stories” as possible. In the meantime, we’re excited to celebrate every single milestone because it IS a journey and it truly takes a village.
With love, Déjà
