Sunrise Neighborhood
Assistance Program (SNAP)

SNAP is a 10+ year old non-profit 501(c) (3) organization—“at the heart of the community”—  focused on positive aging-in-place. We help our neighborhood’s senior adults (+55, who also may be disabled) live in their own homes safely and independently for as long as possible, through core services, education and social programs.

Neighborhoods Served in Northeast Tucson, Arizona:

The SNAP service area in northeast Tucson, bordered by Craycroft, Sunrise, Kolb/Sabino and River Roads, is comprised of nearly 100 businesses and 3600 residences (townhomes, freestanding single  homes, apartments and recreational facilities).  Approximately half of the homes in this area were developed under the name of “Fairfield” 40 years ago and are segmented into 12 Sunrise Homeowners’ Associations. Eight other neighborhoods with freestanding houses or as distinct homeowner’s associations are located within the service area.

SNAP also is affiliated with the Alliance of Arizona Non-Profits as well as the Neighbors Care Alliance of the Pima Council on Aging.  SNAP is connected with the United Way’s ELDER Alliance, a collaborative team of social service agencies, governmental entities and private businesses/organizations in Tucson to help Pima County residents grow old gracefully in their own homes.  Jewish Family and Children’s Services (JFCS) has provided funding, technical expertise and support for SNAP through the ELDER Alliance.

Now celebrating more than ten years of continuous service to the community, SNAP has been funded by cash donations, grants, gifts, sponsorships and in-kind contributions of goods and services.
