OH - Youngstown clergy abuse victims meet this week
For immediate release: Monday, Aug. 26, 2013
A self help group for men and women who were abused by clergy will hold a confidential support meeting in Youngstown this week.
The organization is SNAP “Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests”. The meeting will be Wednesday, Aug 28.
“Victims, family members, and supporters are welcome and encouraged to attend,” said Judy Jones of St. Louis, SNAP’s associate Midwest regional director. “Getting together in a private setting can help to start the healing of anyone who has been abused as a child or exploited as an adult.”
Sometimes, SNAP is perceived as an “activist” group, Jones said. “But the bulk of what we do is to just listen and offer consolation – quietly and privately - to people who are in pain.”
For location and time, please contact Barb Dorris, SNAP Outreach Director, 314-862-7688, SNAPdorris@gmail.com
SNAP Conference Postponed to September
As cases of COVID-19 continue to dominate the headlines, affect the way we work and play, and force changes to our daily lives, we have decided to postpone the SNAP Annual Conference from July until September. We are now planning to hold the conference from September 25 - 27 and it will still be held in Denver, CO.
In order to help make this change easier, we will be charging only $99 for registration from now through June 30. Stay tuned for updates and register today on our conference page.SNAP Conference Postponed to September
