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

Rating: 5 stars  

As PTA president Leconte elementary school, and vice president Berkeley PTA Council , Berkeley California, I had extensive experience with Bananas organization and staff, which are very professional and personal. As a minority, Chicano, I took great pride in their ability to service all aspects of our community. I have provided a link to the website for your review, http://www.bananasinc.org/. As a UC Berkeley-school of architecture graduate and Vietnam veteran I found this organization to provide a most important service for our community. Raising a family is the most important thing a father can do and may be difficult and challenging. Being able to rely on a organization like Bananas was very reassuring.

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

When welfare to work started by the state of California, bananas was directed to assist many families looking for childcare. This is very stressful for many families, concern for their children and the difficulty of finding good/safe childcare for their families. The bananas staff provided this service with great care and consideration of the family serviced.

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

Provide greater financing to augment an increase their programs and services offered. They are the best, we in the Bay Area are very lucky to have them provide this service for us. If I can provide any additional information or assistance concerning this matter please do not hesitate to call me, 510-849-3018 or e-mail at zphred@aol.com. I am very proud to know this organization and staff. Sincerely Fred Atilano.
