The demand for services has sky rocketed over the years and we realize how critical it is to be closer to those we serve.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
In response to the high demand for services and program growth, Special Needs Network (SNN) has relocated its office to the Crenshaw District in order to better serve LA families of special needs children. Since its inception in 2005, SNN has provided resources and services to more than 30,000 families, establishing it as the premier nonprofit organization in South Los Angeles working on issues of autism and related developmental disabilities. Prior to this move, SNN was located at Wilshire Boulevard.
“This move will allow us to be in the heart of our communities,” says Areva Martin, Esq., president and co-founder of SNN, “The demand for services has sky rocketed over the years and we realize how critical it is to be closer to those we serve.”
Conveniently situated across from the future Metro station at historic Leimert Park, SNN’s new office location is housed in the Chase Bank Building. Located at 4103 Crenshaw Boulevard, the new location will allow SNN easier access for families to public transportation and will provide additional opportunities for families to receive SNN services. Other nonprofits such as Los Angeles Urban League, LA Child Guidance and Junior Blind of America occupy the area as well and will open the doors for more collaboration and support.
Additionally, the 1850-square-foot facility, leased from The Bakewell Company, will provide ample space for 10 new staff members, equipping SNN to better serve LA’s special needs children and their families. With no intention to slow down, this transition will allow the organization to perpetuate growth and serve LA in a greater magnitude.
