Total Funds Raised: $5,364,587

SPAN is primarily funded via state and federal government grants. This has been the case for many years and while it is a testament to our ability to deliver successful program outcomes year after year, such money may be restricted and can limit our ability to be as flexible as we need to be in order to meet the quickly changing needs of our families and professional partners. A higher percentage of donations from individuals and organizations will allow us to broaden our services and more quickly pivot to meet the evolving needs of the communities we impact.

Outreach Highlights

SPAN takes a holistic approach to empowering families and engaging professionals across New Jersey, the United States, and around the world. We manage and/or partner in more than two dozen programs at any given time that engage tens of thousands of families – parents and youth/young adults – and professionals each year. From prenatal care and support, to early childhood development, to youth education and healthcare advocacy, all the way to young adult transition guidance; our programs follow the lives of those with the greatest need.
