Bowling for Reena Fundraising Event

Our Foundation

Reena Foundation raises funds to improve the lives of people with Autism and other developmental disabilities, mental health challenges, and other diverse health needs.

As the fundraising arm of Reena, we support transformational housing projects and vital programs including Day, Respite and Employment.


As we’ve adjusted to new regulations amid the pandemic, we have faced increased expenses. We thank you for helping us meet these additional challenges and for making it possible for individuals with developmental disabilities to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment.

Every gift makes a difference.
