CUPW Special Needs Project celebrates 20 years
The Special Needs Project (SNP) is an initiative of the CUPW Child Care Fund, and is a one‑of‑a‑kind program. It was launched in 1996 after a union-sponsored study found that parents of children with disabilities face more barriers to workforce participation than others. The project provides information, resources and financial support to families with children who have special needs, to help reduce the emotional, physical and financial stresses and improve their quality of life.
