Many residents need extra support or assistance from time to time as they age. Some either choose or need to give up driving, causing concern about how they can stay in their homes without a car. There are limited public transportation options in the SNAP service area. This need for transportation and other services for elderly and infirm neighbors in our community led to the creation of Sunrise Neighborhood Assistance Program in 2009.
SNAP MISSION: To provide an array of “neighbors helping neighbors” volunteer services, educational programs and social events that assist and support residents who are aging-in-place in their own homes.
SNAP VISION: To enhance the quality of life for senior and/or disabled, injured, or ill residents residing in the SNAP service area so they may age-in-place for as long as possible.
