FROM AWARENESS TO WELL-BEING
Making a difference in the lives of those who suffer from depression and mental illness.
The journey to mental health is a challenging road for patients and their supporting families alike. Enduring the pain. The struggle to find answers. The weight of this journey should not be endured alone.
The CJK Foundation is a not-for-profit organization built to create positive change and hope in the darkest of times through advocating awareness, supporting patients and their families undergoing treatment, and raising funds for research. Like a dragonfly’s flight is light and adaptable, the mission and vision of the Foundation is to alleviate the burden and offer support to those in need.
The Foundation was established to carry on the selfless and loving nature of our beloved Connie J. Klanica. Connie taught us all to give selflessly, love unconditionally, and help without question. Her graceful spirit is the guiding light for change by which this Foundation will work to support the journey from awareness to well-being.
Who We Are
The extended Sienkowski and Klanica families started this foundation in memory of Connie Joan Sienkowski Klanica — our beloved mother, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend. It is in her memory that we hope to make a difference in the lives of those who suffer from depression and mental illness.
What We Do
From individual family outreach and research funding to Mental Health First Aid training, the CJK Foundation offers an incredible breadth of mental health resources and support.
