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.
As a social worker and child development specialist who has worked in this field for many years, I happy to have the opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation for such a wonderful comprehensive program. I have great respect for Jeena. The ability to collaborate with community, provide amazing network of support on many levels, to share meaningful information, it is truly a program that speaks to the needs of children and families.
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!
