The Accessibility Advocate – September 2017

September 8, 2017

From the President’s Corner!



I hope everyone is well. 


Our thoughts and prayers go out to those in Texas regarding Hurricane Harvey. 


Enclosed within the Newsletter, please read the feature on our Galveston Port Agent who shared his own story as well as pictures.                   


We also wish for the saftey of those in projected path of Hurricane Irma.  Please pray for South Florida.


Thank you again for being a continued partner as we continue to evolve in Delivering an Accessible World™.



Keep Smilin’,

Special Needs Group Galveston Port Agent

Assists Community After Hurricane Harvey  


Craig Yager, SNG’s Galveston Port Agent, recently provided aid and is continuing to do so in assisting his local area following the aftermath created by Hurricane Harvey. 


Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Friday, August 25th and continued with an incredible amount of rain well into Sunday.  Living on the west side of Houston, Special Needs Group has two different storage locations one in Pasadena and the other in Dickinson.  Although the surrounding area of our Pasadena warehouse was submerged under water, the office as well as equipment was safe.  However, our equipment in Dickinson was at a total loss due to Harvey’s destruction.
