HISTORY

Writing the Vision & Running With It

OneSource Learning and Development Center was founded by Tonya Daye. The organization was initially designed to educate adolescents in K-12, teens and families on teen pregnancy, pregnancy prevention, reducing health disparities and risky behaviors, while providing supportive services, but expanded to capture expectant parents and children from birth to 5, because of the importance of Health & Wellness, Physical Development, Cognition,  Social and  Emotional Development, Language and Communication and School Readiness.


Tonya became a mother at the age of 19. After briefly utilizing WIC and Food Stamps, she opted not to re-certify to continue receiving services based off a conversation she had with her case manager who instructed her to leave her job and find a job that paid less and discouraged her from maintaining assets in her name.  From that moment, Tonya decided not only to continue to work, but she transferred to second shift and took advantage of overtime and started to attend community college, while her grandmother and mother helped care for her daughter.  


Tonya overcame physical, emotional and a verbally abusive relationship and  believes given education, awareness and an opportunity, you can create a sustainable future and live a fulfilled life by focusing-forward. 


Tonya is a Wife, Mother, Author, Certified Life & Career Coach, and  Public Speaker. Tonya and her husband has four children, two daughters and two sons, with one son receiving a diagnosis of Sensory Processing  Disorder (SPD)/Autism at the age of  five. Based upon personal experience, she realized the importance of ensuring parents are educated, whether their child have special needs or not, access to various intervention services early in a child's life, access to affordable quality childcare and knowledge of programs that's inclusive of special needs children. She concentrates in working with both men and women of all ages to overcome  hardships, difficulties, behaviors and patterns that would interfere  with long-standing goals and to reach their fullest potential.
