Mission Statement
SPAN (Special Persons Advocacy Network)- Our purpose is to be a resource for supports for individuals with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities, and to families and those interested in improving the quality of life for persons with special needs.  Our goal is to create community awareness and involvement, enhance social, recreational, vocational and living opportunities for persons with special needs and offer life enrichment experiences and opportunities.
Background Statement
SPAN was founded in May of 1997, and incorporated as a non-profit agency in 1999. SPAN was created by families of children and adults with developmental disabilities and/or mental retardation. Members recognized the need individuals with disabilities have for community involvement and the current lack of such opportunities in our area.

CEO Comments Bobbie   

Dear Contributor, Sponsor, Donor;

 I believe in the work of S.P.A.N. because it has value. It is challenging and rewarding. SPAN seeks to provide support, education, and funding to parents and their children with developmental disabilities and mental retardation. We believe that all people, regardless of their abilities have value and that if provided the opportunity, they can become contributing members of society. We are a total non-paid volunteer organization whose monies go directly to support our mission to provide a means for these citizens to maintain a sense of dignity and responsibility in their communities.

 Dave Maynard, President
