Review for Project Jason, Yakima, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Project Jason is a wonderful organization that helps so many families going through the worst time in their lives. When my granddaughter was abducted by her non-custodial mother in 2007, Project Jason was there for my family, offering us support and counseling on their website, and also posting pictures, flyers and information about my granddaughter across the internet and across the country. Luckily, my granddaughter was found after 10 weeks and brought home safely. I truly believe that Project Jason played an important role in her being found so quickly. Kelly Jolkowski, the founder of Project Jason, started this non-profit organization after her son, Jason, went missing in 2001. Kelly's son hasn't been found yet, but she courageously fights on to help other families going through this painful experience. Kelly Jolkowski took a devastating tragedy in her own life and turned it into a beacon of hope for so many people. Project Jason offers many diverse programs to help the families of the missing. Among them is an annual retreat for the families where they can relax and be with others who understand the trauma they are going through. At these retreats, Project Jason offers workshops and counseling to help families learn how to cope with their tragedy and also fun and games to help relieve their stress and pain. Project Jason is an important and much-needed organization which depends on donations to keep it going. I sincerely hope that those reading this review will never need the services of Project Jason, but if you ever do, they will be there for you.

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

many ways. Several missing persons have been found as a direct result of the help that Project Jason offered.

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

do nothing differently. Kelly Jolkowski runs this organization very competently and professionally.

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

the kindness of the volunteers who offered me and my family help when our loved one was missing.

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

kind and genuinely caring individuals.

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

find so many more missing persons and bring relief to many more families.

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to attend the annual retreat that Project Jason offers for the families of the missing.

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

having to raise funds to continue operating.

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

having a missing loved one can happen to anyone at any time. This world needs organizations like Project Jason who offer services free of charge to the families of the missing.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
