About the Conference

2018 Annual SNAP Conference

July 6-8 

The Palmer House Hilton,

Chicago, Illinois.

Register today!

SNAP was founded in 1988 as a self-help support group for those who were sexually violated. This summer we celebrate our 30th year supporting survivors, protecting children and raising community awareness through education and advocacy. 

If this is your first meeting with SNAP, we applaud your courage. Please know that we appreciate your presence and respect your privacy. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions or concerns. You will be joining hundreds of survivors like you, we may not have all the answers, but we can share our experiences.

We encourage those who have attended previously to reach out to the other conference attendees and make everyone feel welcome and included. 

Need someone to talk to? All weekend long, trained supporters and peer counselors will be available to speak one-on-one. This is an opportunity to privately discuss personal, abuse-related issues, ask questions or seek support. Please visit the quiet room any time.

We hope you enjoy the conference. If there is anything we can do to help you, please don’t hesitate to ask us. You can find us at the Registration Desk.

We are so grateful for the opportunity to get together to learn from and support one another!

    Has the Program been completed for July. I would be interested in the Plenary speaker and featured speakers. I received an email from Tim Lennon who said he was going to send me the Agenda within days, unfortunately that was 3 weeks ago. Can you give me an update. I have also booked my flight, hotel and conference reservation, and am committed to SNAP, but it would be helpful if you responded with the conference Agenda. I would like to be prepared for an effective conference. Thank you

    I just wish you would divide conferences on 4 parts of the US so those of us who have little money could participate. And if you had more time to answers victims calls and need for communication
