Learn About The Arc Mercer SNAP Club

By John Bird, Recreation Manager

Special Needs Alliance for Pride (or what is known as SNAP), is a club dedicated to reaching out to the LGBTQ+ community for support and acceptance. The founder of the SNAP Club, Ray Truitt, started this club with the purpose to bring together individuals that identify as LGBTQ+ with special needs.

As this topic of LGBTQ+ and Special Needs together has not been talked about before, the SNAP Club wanted to be the first to bring this issue to the national level. With the club being almost a year old, the members of SNAP have had monthly MeetUps at Trenton Social in Trenton, NJ and other events that have brought attention to this issue.

If you would like to join the SNAP Club or become a mentor, please contact John Bird at 609-406-0181, ext. 191 or by email at jbird@arcmercer.org
