Vermont Business Magazine The Special Needs Support Center (SNSC), based in White river Junction, has received a $10,000 grant from Doug Flutie Jr Foundation for Autism. The grant will help SNSC continue to create a community where people with special needs, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, can live their best lives.
“All of our programs support families and individuals with special needs to become empowered through learning, sharing and collaborating with each other. This grant from the Flutie Foundation reaffirms the importance of our work and their faith in our performance,” said Executive Director Laura Perez. “We are grateful they have joined us, once again, as partners in making our programs available and accessible”.
SNSC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and relies upon the generous support of individuals, businesses, and philanthropic organizations like Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism to operate their programs.
“The Flutie Foundation Signature Grants help our partner agencies address a variety of significant needs in the autism community,” says Nick Savarese, Executive Director of the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. “Organizations like SNSC are helping people on the autism spectrum live life to the fullest and we are proud to support their efforts.”
The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, based in Framingham, MA, awards grants annually through a competitive application and review process. The signature grants that the Flutie Foundation distributed this year support traditionally under-served, under-funded, culturally diverse communities reflected in the Foundation’s areas of interest; providing a path for educational and vocational skills, supporting recreational and active lifestyles, and ensuring people with autism are safe, supported and informed.
SNSC continues to raise funds to support their services. To learn more about SNSC’s services, or contribute to their programs, go to www.sncc-uv.org or call 603-448-6311.
