Mennonite survivor-advocate Barbra Graber first attended the 2014 SNAP Conference in Chicago and found there much needed support and education. In 2016, a Mennonite chapter of SNAP began. Our SNAP Survivor support groups are not exclusively Mennonite. We welcome any survivor from any or no faith background to our support groups. Donations to the chapter will help make it possible for Mennonite related survivors to attend SNAP Conferences. Donate to SNAP Mennonite today!
