Our founder, Sonya Bersani, is the mother of two beautiful boys, Eric and Jack. Her eldest, Eric is on the spectrum, having been diagnosed with Autism early in life. When Eric turned 13, Sonya started to realize there wasn’t much in terms of assistance for adults with Autism & IDD. This left her in the same position many parents find themselves in: scared for their child’s future independence.
Sonya took a step back and asked herself what her options were, and found herself surrounded by many influential people who may be able to help. She felt called to be the instigator of change, and has been working tirelessly to build a community where adults with Autism & IDD can live. Her connections in The Woodlands as a loan officer have given her a platform to stand on, and a place at the right tables for building a neighborhood.
We acquired our first plot of land in November of 2021. The community we dream of building is just on the horizon, and we can’t wait to show it to you!
