April 1, 2022, is Southside Support’s SNAZiversary! Unveiled on February 14, 2019, the Special Needs Accommodation Zone, better known as SNAZ, is Southside Support’s RV that travels to community events to provide a space for families and individuals with special needs. Community events provide a great way to feel connected, access resources, and relax. Unfortunately, events like these pose a challenge to families and individuals who require accommodations. Southside Support recognized this obstacle and created SNAZ to help bridge the gap and increase accessibility for those with special needs. SNAZ attended its first event on April 7, 2019, and operates to provide accessibility and inclusion opportunities to those who face challenges when attending community events. SNAZ serves several vital purposes and is equipped with an adult changing station, refrigeration for feeding tube supplies, a quiet zone for those with sensory sensitivities, a private area for breastfeeding, and more!
On April 1, 2022, Southside Support celebrates our SNAZiversary. Join us in celebrating by supporting our SNAZiversary Golf Tournament. Proceeds support our SNAZ program alongside other vital initiatives for our Southside families. For more information or to register for our SNAZiversary Golf Tournament, click here.
Since its initial unveiling in 2019, SNAZ has become a valuable asset to the community, but we’re just getting started! In 2022 and 2023, Southside intends to expand our SNAZ program by adding more SNAZ mobiles!
