Review for BANANAS, Inc., Oakland, CA, USA
As a fellow social work associate, this organization is grass-roots, "parent 911". No fluff, they actually get results for parents. Many parents in crisis have been helped by Bananas. This place is like no other I've ever seen. They get donations from the community, which they turn back out to the community, and I know families that have survived on these donations...a mom who had no PJ's for her child--got some at Bananas--FREE!, a new single Dad whose toddler showed up to pre school w/no shoes--found some at Bananas--new parents with an "early arrival" that they weren't ready for--Banana's totally set them up so they could bring baby home--that baby had clothes, a bed, books, even toys---this place is a god-send. I was a client myself many years ago. So I know this place from both perspectives.
