10 Years Strong: Patiently Standing Together for Change


MISSION

Our mission is to raise public awareness of developmental disabilities and to impact public policy while providing education and resources to families, children and adults. SNN serves as a link between under-served communities and mainstream developmental disability organizations and governmental institutions which often fail to address issues specific to these communities. SNN firmly believes that dignity, hope, and opportunity are the birthright of all children.

PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING SPECIAL NEEDS NETWORK

With your support we are determined to raise the bar.
