Salcha's Neighborly Organization
The Mission of Salcha's Neighborly Organization (S.N.O.) is to use it's non-profit status to provide a 'safety net', a multitude of community services to Salcha. Including, but not limited to, designing, providing and maintaining a LEED facility to be known as the Salcha Community Center; along with the management needed to provide the community services implied by such a name.
Believing that the ability of public transit; shower and laundry facilities; and the opportunities found in our U.S. public library system can and will improve lives; SNO desires to assist in bringing these basic services to Salcha.
