Special Needs Network, Inc. (SNN), California’s leading grassroots autism advocacy organization, in collaboration will host the 10th Annual Back 2 School Health + Resource Fair from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, August 19 at Mt. Carmel Recreation Center 834 W. 70th St., Los Angeles, CA 90044. Aimed to provide relief to families under financial pressure who may find it difficult to purchase back to school materials, We are committed to distribute over 1000 backpacks filled with supplies like pencils, notebooks, and more.

“We began Back 2 School to provide underserved children and youths with the tools essential for school success,” said president + co-founder Areva Martin, Esq. “Today, we address not only academic needs, but health and wellness as well.”

Back 2 School is the biggest inclusion healthcare + resource fair in Los Angeles for children with developmental disabilities and their families. The event will bring out resource vendors to provide families with medical, dental, developmental, and mental health screenings, pro bono legal clinic, and educational workshops to improve your overall health and wellness, and more.

In addition to the signature backpack giveaway, Back 2 School will also feature fun activities including rock climbing, arts and crafts, pony ride, bouncy house, gaming stations, live music, and surprise celebrity guests. Additionally, there will be a raffle that will include an iPad and more.

“This is one of the country’s most innovative event and a much-needed part of the Los Angeles community,” said Los Angeles County Board (District 2) Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.

Each year, Back 2 School provides a fun and inclusive setting that brings developmentally disabled children together with their typical peers for an exciting afternoon filled with family-friendly fun and critical socialization.
