Review for BANANAS, Inc., Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a long time volunteer at BANANAS serving in my capacity as a public health nurse. BANANAS has always brought together volunteers from various disciplines to provide workshops, training and other resources to serve the interests of parents and other child care providers in the task or child rearing. They are truly dedicated to serving the diverse needs of families in Northern Alameda County.

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

improving the quality of child care services and linking families to child care and other resources. I have also seen the benefits of their efforts to serve bilingual and new immigrant populations.

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

provide more financial resources to free staff from the burdens of constant fundraising and allow them to focus on service delivery

Role:  Volunteer & I provided workshops, written resources, and community resources to improve the health of children and families using child care.
