Jeena

Hope for kids - because special needs require special attention

We are a “self-help” group of parents, dedicated to enhancing the quality of life, of parents and individuals with developmental disabilities.

Enhance the quality of life of individuals with developmental disabilities and their primary caregivers by empowering individuals through information and emotional support.

Jeena is currently focusing on projects in the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern California and in some parts of India.

Programs in San Francisco Bay Area

  • Social Skill Development: Evidence based practice indicates, an individual is likely to develop constructive relationships when there is a systematic and supportive exposure to various activities. Based on this philosophy, Jeena offers activities such as weekly dance and yoga classes, classical music lessons, vocational art classes, camp and field trips.
  • Outreach and Resources: Research has shown that the quality of parent-child relationship improves when parents meet their information and emotional needs. Online forums, regular peer group meetings and informative workshops provide the emotional and informational support for parents and caregivers.
  • Intervention Support: Jeena understands the value of generalizing skills and offers support to families at home in form of private tuition to children whose parents are monolingual.

Programs in Southern California

  • Information and Emotional Support: Established in May 2012, Jeena SoCal chapter is growing. The families meet once a month for activities and provide mutual support and opportunities for children for social interaction.

Programs in India

  • Partnership with KPAMRC:
    Jeena is collaborating with Karnataka Parents Association of Mentally Retarded Citizens to offer support to families and individuals with developmental disabilities.

Our members say :

“I am extremely grateful that Anisha had this opportunity to present her newly acquired talent. She enjoys stage presence, but also struggles with the sensory overload of a public performance. Anisha performed with the group singing “Heal the World”, for Jeena Yahaan 2013.”

Our volunteers say :

“Working with the Jeena kids has truly been an incredible experience. Here, I am able to use my fervor for dance, as an outlet for developmentally challenged children and teenagers from the South Asian community to express and enable themselves through music and movement.”
