Meet Melissa

I have a special place in my heart for special needs children. My brother is autistic and it was very hard for my mother to find a caregiver for him. I helped her raise him and he is now a happy, loving 36-year-old man. I have helped out at a camp for special needs children since I was 13 and I always have fun being a camp counselor.

I hope to one day own a Home-based care exclusively for special needs... more
