Directors Message

SNF is in its thirteenth year as a center for adults with special needs and with every year, we realize how far we have grown and become more ambitious in our aim of training people of determination. We have been able to successfully integrate a number of students into the workforce and will continue to persevere in our goals of fostering acceptance for these adults who deserve an equal place in our society. We hope to receive your support in any way possible, as I am well aware from my experiences in the past that every little bit helps.
