History

Building the Foundation

OneSource Learning and Development Center was founded by Tonya Daye. The organization was initially designed to educate adolescents, teens and families on teen pregnancy, pregnancy prevention, reducing health disparities and risky behaviors, while providing supportive services, but expanded to capture children from birth to school-age, while working with parents.  Services now include K-12, Drop-out intervention & Re-engagement, Workforce/ Career/Organizational development for disabled and non-disabled youth and individuals. 

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. She has four children, two daughters and two sons, with one son receiving a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at the age of five. Based upon personal experience, she realized the importance of having access to various intervention services for your child early in life, that's affordable and 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.
