HBO To Air Autism Documentary

A group of teens and young adults from Columbus, Ohio with developmental disabilities spend months preparing to tackle their social anxieties surrounding a high school dance. HBO presents the documentary called “How to Dance in Ohio” which will air later this year on the cable network following its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

The 88-minute film follows individuals with Autism as they spend 12 weeks working on their social skills with help from a psychologist. The individuals learn how to overcome their biggest fears as they pick dates and dresses for the big night.

“This is a film not only for the many whose lives are touched in some way by autism, but also for anyone who can relate to the fraught experience of growing up and trying to understand adulthood,” said director Alexandra Shiva.

Stay tuned for more information and to find out what measures were taken in order for these individuals to overcome their fears.

Jawonio Receives Grants for Integrated Health, Wellness & Work Project and Training

The grants awarded by the New York Regional Economic Development Councils will afford us the opportunity to expand Jawonio’s main campus and continue to provide services to the region for years to come,” said Jill Warner, CEO, Jawonio, Inc. “The new campus will integrate medical, behavioral health, and wellness services in a centralized site, as well as provide job training and retention. We look forward to working with business, government and non-profit partners on this project. This is a vote of confidence for Jawonio’s planned expansion, and we thank Governor Cuomo and the Mid-Hudson Economic Development Council.”

Holiday Drive For Our Soldiers

Soldiers at Holidays

Jawonio has partnered with Dr. Fern, a pediatric dentist in New City, to help distribute care packages for our service men and women overseas this holiday season.

In her third year of this holiday drive for our soldiers, she is working with a family whose loved one has recently returned from Afghanistan, where his troop was a recipient of the packages.

We are collecting the following items at the Jawonio Foundation Office in the main building.

  • Pre-wrapped candy
  • Handwritten cards
  • Non-perishables
  • Phone cards
  • Toiletries

Every little bit will help! These thoughtful gifts from home make such a difference to the soldiers who cannot be with their families. Thank you, and Happy Holidays from Jawonio!
