Special Needs Network, Inc.


More than 40 percent of America’s homeless population are people with disabilities and the number appears to be rising, according to an annual report on homelessness from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  SNN is driven to assist social service providers in effectively meeting the needs of this population. We have partnered with H.O.P.I.C.S – Homeless Outreach Program Integrated Care System – a leading agency serving the homeless population, to train 60 professionals from H.O.P.I.C.S and other partner organizations. This 18-hour intensive program teaches social service professionals how to assist adults and children with developmental disabilities in navigating systems of care, and how to access critical services necessary for permanent housing.
