Dear SNSC Family,

I am reaching out to announce my planned transition from the Executive Director role at the Special Needs Support Center.  When I began my work at SNSC I had no idea of the wonderful journey I was about to embark on. Through both the fun and challenging times, our team has always known we could lean on the trust we have for one another to help us deliver on our shared vision of a community where all people with special needs, and their families, have opportunities and support to pursue their goals and aspirations. We have accomplished so much during this time, and none of it could have been done without each other. 

SNSC is in a great place and is ready for new leadership to launch itself into its next phase as an organization. This transition is strategic and purposeful. I’ve been working alongside our staff team and our board, working to envision and bring to life what’s needed next for SNSC’s future. We are solidifying our values and our vision and we are aligning the skills, assets and the opportunities in front of us with a leadership model that supports what the organization we will be in the future.

There are hardly words to express my gratitude for all in the SNSC family. From our passionate and experienced staff,  competent board, incredible self-advocates and participant leaders, parents, the larger disability community, and a dedicated group of donors and nonprofit partners, I say this from my heart, I love you like family. Without you, the organization would not be as strong and vibrant as it is. I am so excited to see SNSC continue to blossom and am so thankful for your willingness to let me be a part of your journey for so long. 

Yours in service,

Laura Perez, Executive Director, SNSC
