We are Supporting Special Needs (SSN) – a service organization focused on providing volunteer opportunities to students through Laura Baker Services Association (LBSA). This is a Northfield organization that supports individuals with developmental disabilities. We also host events to promote awareness about those with special needs. Last March, we promoted the “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign on campus!
Meetings are biweekly on Thursday nights 7-8, and we meet to make crafts for the clients as well as seasonal decorations for LBSA. On the second Saturday of each month, LBSA hosts a Respite Event for younger clients to attend that we volunteer at. There are many opportunities and ways to get involved at different commitment levels! The commitment level is what you want it to be.
We find the experiences and interactions with the clients extremely rewarding, and we aim to promote and support equal opportunities for people with developmental disabilities!
