Barbara Dorris, SNAP Outreach Director


Barbara Dorris is the victims managing director for SNAP. As a teacher in her parish school, she caught a parish priest molesting children and unsuccessfully tried to have him removed. When church officials were recalcitrant, she came to SNAP for help. In 2002, she began working as a full time volunteer with SNAP and joined the staff two years later. In her work with SNAP, she has helped hundreds of survivors across the world and works closely with local SNAP leaders in the US (and increasingly, SNAP leaders oveseas).

Dorris is herself a survivor of childhood clergy abuse who has six grown children and five grandchildren.
