SNAP is a growing non-profit 501(c) (3) organization—“at the heart of the community”— helping disabled and senior adults live in their own homes safely and independently for as long as possible. “Aging-in-place” is a highly desired option for senior living today. SNAP is a “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” program affiliated with Neighbors Care Alliance of the Pima Council on Aging.
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.
For the past five years, SNAP has been affiliated with ELDER Alliance as a pilot neighborhood. ELDER Alliance is 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 six 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.
