Special Needs Information Program (SNIP)
Over the last 12 months the Special Needs Information Program (SNIP) expanded from one town to 24 towns in our region. This voluntary safety program helps emergency responders identify and respond to vulnerable residents with special needs. The benefits of the program to our most vulnerable citizens and to law enforcement make it an invaluable safety tool for our community. The tool is free to residents and provides local law enforcement with essential information prior to an emergency. Learn more or sign up here.

Sensory Friendly UV
In partnership with the Dartmouth Autism Research Initiative, we support partners in creating accessible spaces that accommodates and supports the physical, sensory, communication, and social/emotional needs of people with disabilities. We offer site assessments with written recommendations to adjust the auditory, visual and olfactory stimulation. Next, we offer venue-specific training that increases understanding of disabilities and explains difficulties that may be experienced in that particular setting, why they arise and offer ways to address or overcome them. As leading experts in the field, we provide high quality training and create customized supports for businesses and community organizations. Recent partners include VINS, Montshire, Vital Communities, the Lebanon Opera House, and the Upper Valley Music Center.
