Mission 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.

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.
