CAPE ANN SPECIAL NEEDS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

ABOUT kids-01

Cape Ann Special Needs Assistance Program (Cape Ann SNAP) is a non-profit regional organization serving the communities of Cape Ann Massachusetts – Gloucester, Rockport, Essex, and Manchester By-The-Sea. We work to provide Special Needs individuals with housing, education, and year round activities, including participation in Special Olympics programs.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to help individuals with special needs to further their education and to develop the skills necessary to have healthier fuller lives. We do this by offering programs and activities that promote growth, love, respect and support through community involvement.

Nonprofit founders have a calling, a mission, an internal mandate, fueled by classic entrepreneurial characteristics. They have energy, drive, intensity, self-determination and urgency. Tom Hines, founder of the Cape Ann Special Needs Assistance Program, is no different. Tom sees the many talents and gifts the special needs individuals of Cape Ann have to offer. His passion to assist in obtaining housing, education, year round activities and Special Olympics participation is infectious. While passion is not enough to sustain a non-profit organization, Tom is reaching out to the community to help reach his goals, with a variety of fundraising events throughout the year.

THANK YOU SUDBAY MOTORS

Cape Ann SNAP is pleased to be supporting Jeff and Christin Vincent, here with a new car leased through Sudbay Motors. Their vehicle will allow them to more easily get to work in Salem as well as help with transportation for other Cape Ann SNAP young adults who need rides to and from work, appointments, and special events.
