Roman Music Therapy Services

Wakefield, Massachusetts


One of the greatest challenges of running Roman Music Therapy Services has been moving into a larger space. The rent quadrupled, and bringing on new staff and music therapy managers meant additional overhead costs.


I was introduced to Accion by my banker at Eastern Bank. I was approved for a loan, which provided me with the capital to take on new staff, launch new programs and add to our inventory.


I felt like Accion believed in me and the importance of my business at a time when my financial obstacles were truly overwhelming. To have that vote of confidence from Accion meant more than the money did. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their help.
