I am one of the Directors of a social service agency which delivers services to a number of families involved in JEENA. JEENA is a "home away from home" for many of the families and their children with special needs. It is a huge community organization which supports these families in numerous ways. Kudos to the organizers who so passionately give their time and energy.

On each occasion that I have enjoyed this phenomenal organization I have come away inspired, and excited to go back again! Jeena's founder is one of the most caring and warm individuals I have ever met, and this translates so seamlessly to an organization that gracefully influences the lives of families w/special needs kids in ways that words cannot express. Jeena is consistent in the quality of speakers, events & classes offered, and all of my child friends have come away with (even if the slightest tinge) a heightened self-efficacy. I hope they never stop dancing!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Every child client I have sent or accompanied to an event here.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

In order to touch the lives of many, I might suggest more marketing...but that would mean bigger organization w/more employees, & more funding needed in a time of economic downturn. Suffice to say that those who reap Jeena's benefits are fortunate.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

...the experience my kids come away with!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Bright, cooperative & friendly.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open a large non-profit with many fingers out in the Special Needs arena, so that many more would be able to feel the support these people give with such effortless grace.

Ways to make it better...

...I could have stayed longer...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

...perhaps it is it's size. I would love to see the "10 million bucks" scenario come true!

One thing I'd also say is that...

I hope someday that more of my private clients are able to enjoy the great things Jeena offers in the future.
