Mission Moment – Graduation Spotlight

Mission Moment - mom with child

Meet Enid. She was a stay-at-home mother to her 2 children, Hansel and Josiah. She noticed that Hansel’s speech development was delayed but didn’t know how to help him. AVANCE was there to help.

Through AVANCE, Enid was able to find the Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) and Development she needed for her son, Hansel. She was referred to Austin’s ECI program and then to AISD’s Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities.

“My son has progressed so much. The teachers have said he’s like a new person. He talks a lot now and follows directions,” said Enid.

Enid has equally grown with the help of AVANCE. She didn’t know if she was prepared to go back to work or even know how she was going to manage her time with 2 young children. Through AVANCE’s resources and her classmates help, Enid now has a clearer vision for her future. She has started her own e-commerce business from home and plans to continue to grow that business venture.

“I am more motivated now. If I set goals, I can achieve them because AVANCE believes in me,” said Enid.
