At their early intervention center for autistic children and children with developmental delays, Keiia and her husband Vargas help children by focusing on applied behavior analysis. Throughout treatments, Keiia and Vargas use computers accompanied by sensory tools to help children learn and transition into society.

For the past four years at Helping Hands Learning Academy in Southaven, Miss., the couple has used tools to help children adjust to social norms by educating them through their senses to help them be ready for daily life in school and society.

In order to enhance their philanthropic service, Keiia and Vargas searched for a business loan. Shortly after, they learned of Accion Texas Inc. and were approved for a loan to finance computers and sensory tools for their business. The loan will help the couple assist their students through their best services in the care industry, and continue to be competitive with other service providers.

The couple agrees they are trying to keep growing and offering the best services they can via their four-member team, and they are thankful to Accion for the loan. Without it, they would be restricted to the education they could provide.
