Check out her inspiring story below.
I started a nonprofit organization, Facing Autism with Children Everywhere (F.A.C.E.). My goal is to promote autism awareness and serve the special needs community. I just opened F.A.C.E.’s Place Respite Care Center on January 11th. Caring for children with special needs can be physically, emotionally, and financially challenging. Parents often sacrifice their own well-being to care for their children.This program makes a significant positive impact in the lives of these families by providing short-term care for these children, while parents enjoy a much deserved and needed break! :-)
