Autism House in Texas outgrew its original location, so its owner turned to Lendio’s marketplace for the funds it needed to purchase a larger place to call home.
Autism House is a behavior therapy center that works with children 2 to 12 years old who have autism and other disabilities.
Autism House first opened its doors in 2011, serving just 4 children. As it grew, it needed more space after reaching the maximum capacity of its rental location.
The center used the funds to purchase a house on 3.5 acres, and now offers both indoor and outdoor learning opportunities for children.
Jessica Cordova started Autism House in 2011 with a $10,000 loan and a desire to help children with autism and other disabilities.
“When we first began, I borrowed $10,000 from Allegiance Bank and asked friends and family to donate toys and books,” she says. “I shopped garage sales and second-hand stores to stretch our budget. I was able to pay off the loan within the first year.”
Just four years after opening its doors, Cordova found that Autism House’s first location could no longer accommodate its growing community. So she turned to Lendio for a loan that she used to purchase a house on 3.5 acres, where it remains today.
“My passion is really seeing a difference in the children we work with,” Cordova says. “Seeing the progress we can make with them, sometimes in just a few short months, is very rewarding.”
