About Lakeshia

Unconditional love and a passion for supporting a person with an intellectual disability to have a better life are things that define each and every one of our Caregivers. But you might be surprised to learn that that’s often where the similarities end.People become Caregivers because they have a passion for putting others first. Seeing someone with an intellectual disability able to lead a happy, safe and fulfilling life is enough to make it all worthwhile. In essence, it’s about making small changes to your everyday life to make major beneficial changes to someone with an intellectual disability. Seeing them respond to their new environment – and the care and love that shapes it - provokes a feeling that must be experienced to be believed. And there’s simply no reward quite like watching the smile emerge and hearing their laughter.my personal achievement is helping mom completed her task at work that we had limited time to do so.a little about myself I'm new to houston texas looking for work I've been here for about 4 months looking for a good job that i would like and help provide for my 2 children I'm an single mom just trying to give me and my boys a good life.
