All of the programs at NESS are great
1. the sensory box.
2. co-pay program
3. witness growth program

I love the ideas and passion this team has to helping the community and shedding light on mental health issues that we often times don't want to talk about.
The book "who do you think you are" written by Desirie Sykes was a good read and I thank you for being so transparent with your readers.
wishing you all the best

The founder Desirie is a very ambitious women.
We met at one of her pop up shops and It was such a pleasure.
The way you encouraged all your vendors and connected us was amazing and I look forward to attending more events by NESS Cares.

NESS Cares helped me get my internship credits needed for college.
This was the BEST internship experience. My team leads really listens to ideas and m made me feel like what I had to say really mattered. What I enjoyed most was watching our ideas come to life by planning and executing.

Thank you so much NESS

Ness Cares is a great organization!! They’re constantly trying to find new ways to support families in need, especially during this pandemic. Currently, they have three programs, the Sensory Box initiative, the Co-Pay program, and the Witness program. Each is geared towards addressing a different need that families have.

NESS Cares has been a great resource throughout the past year. I’m a caregiver (my best friend has a daughter who has Autism, 6 y.o) & I found NESS Cares via Facebook and ordered a care package to send to her. Her daughter really enjoyed the toys and my friend appreciated the masks and sanitation products because it was so hard to find during the beginning of lockdown. Thank you NESS!

Hi! My cousin has ASD and lives in NY. She receives a package from NESS Cares for COVID19 and it helps her a lot to overcome the dynamic change of environment due to COVID19. Now, we wanted to make a change as well and support #mentalhealth and to #witNESSgrowth. If there's any volunteer activities, me and my cousins would like to do it! Thank you, NESS Cares!

NESS Cares has been so caring through its distribution of COVID-19 care packages. They truly care about those with mental health and special education needs. They truly want to make sure everyone has the resources they need like personal protective equipment and parent training resources for parents of children with autism who are struggling with the pandemic. They recently worked to provide meals to families facing food insecurity. As financial difficulties erode us while the need for behavioral health services become more important than ever for those with intellectual disabilities, they want to provide financial assistance to ensure everyone receives access to needed care.

NESS Cares has a variety of resources available for people on the autism spectrum and the caregivers of autistic children. They offer subsidies for ABA services for those who are struggling with being able to afford it. The NESS site has an extensive library of material under their free grayNESS plan. There are a ton of downloadable resources, like workbooks and activities for kids. The blog corner has regular updates with new tips and ideas: everything from home-schooling parent resources to sensory game ideas to conversations about how to overcome anxiety during the pandemic are available at no cost.
This is an excellent free resource for anyone struggling with a learning or developmental disability, mental illness, or providing a comfortable environment for loved ones who face these issues.
