Jenda's commitment to children and families continues with the opening of our new, 5,000 sq. ft. Visitation Center at 324 South 9th Street in Lincoln.  This move takes Jenda from a small, cramped building with 6 spaces for supervised visitation to 10 larger, spacious rooms that allow families the opportunity to spend quality, productive time with each other.  Another way Jenda puts parents and families first in everything we do.

Jenda Family Services is announcing a change affecting our Outpatient Mental Health Treatment Clinic. 

Holly Burns has been the Clinical Director of the Jenda Clinic since its opening one year ago.  During that time, Jenda has established itself as a valuable resource in providing mental health and substance abuse treatment services to children, youth, and adults.  Unfortunately, Holly is leaving Jenda Family Services, effective July 14, 2016.

We want to thank Holly for lending her clinical expertise and knowledge to Jenda and for her work in helping the Jenda clinic establish itself in the Lincoln community.  We wish Holly the very best.
