Review for JEENA, San Jose, CA, USA
I first heard about Jeena when my son was diagnosed with Autism. As a parent I was overwhelmed with the implications of my son's disability and really did not know how to deal with this. Finding services was relatively easy but there was no one I could talk to and get some support and seek advise from parents who were already dealing with this for some time. Jeena provided a platform for parents to come to gether and offer each other advise and a sense of belonging. They offer so many programs like art, music, dance and a variety of therapies to parents at very nominal cost. What I love about Jeena is that it is totally run by parent volunteers who are aware and in most cases know the problems of SNK's first hand. Going to Jeena feels like going home to friends and family. I really thank Rajni for founding Jeena and helping parents like me understand and accept my son's ability.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Getting parents together on a common platform. To give much needed guidance and counseling for newly diagnosed kids and their families. Making a lot of therapies and interventions accessible to parents who can't afford such therapies on their own.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I can't think of any at the moment. Would definitely try to make it more visible may be through media so more families know about it and can seek help and support
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The support and advise I received.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Really outstanding in their dedication to SNK's
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Really make a difference in the lives of SNK's especially from south asian families.
Ways to make it better...
I had been able to go to Jeena more regularly.
