Joining the Targeted Case Management Team in 2021, Lynne Snodgrass brought with her several years of experience working with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She previously worked in the public school in addition to adult homes and settings. “I’ve known and admired Rainbows’ significant work and impact in the community,” said Lynne. “I wanted to work here because I wanted to help make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve.”
As part of her workday Lynne contacts parents to discuss funding requests, Individual Education Programs (IEP), BASIS annual assessment documents as well as Person Centered Support Plans (PCSP) for the children on her caseload. She helps keep the plans up-to-date as needs change when children grow up.
The favorite part of her job is when she makes contact with the children and families during these meetings because she gets to hear about their progress and many successes. “I love hearing about how a child overcame a recent challenge, reached a goal or achieved a new skill,” said Lynne. “My small part in that gives me a lot of satisfaction.”
She also recalls working with the TCM team to implement new and improved internal processes resulting in successful audits for relicensing as a work highlight.
Targeted Case Management Coordinator, Lynlea Southards says, “Lynne is dedicated to the families she serves and goes above and beyond to provide them with resources and the support they need. She also enjoys watching them grow and learn.” The TCM team is grateful for Lynne and honored to work alongside her.
Lynne has a bachelor’s degree in social services from Bethany College and is a licensed therapeutic riding instructor. She volunteers at Walking Free Equine and Art Ministry Center and plays the 12-string guitar as part of the praise and worship team at her church. She loves to make people laugh and experience joy.
A Kansas farm girl, she enjoys planting and growing flowers, horses, writing poetry, and her boxer dog.
