Meet Akshay and the Garcia Family

"When my mom and dad got the news that my brother had autism, they were basically told that he would never graduate, have a job, or even tell someone “I love you.” My parents said to heck with what the doctors assumed and instead worked to find ways to help Akshay. Thanks to TACA, we found a community that supported us through the hard times and helped my brother be the man he is today - a graduate, working his first job, who never forgets to tell his family and friends that he loves them."
