Due to increased calls and survivors' pleas for support, SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAPnetwork.org), will begin monthly confidential support meetings in the Youngstown-Boardman, OH area. The first meeting will be on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011.
Victims who have been abused by priests, nuns, employees or volunteers in religious settings and institutions are welcome and encouraged to attend.
"SNAP support meetings are in a safe environment where victims and family members can share their pain and know that they are not alone. It is a great way to foster the healing process," said Judy Jones, SNAP Midwest Associate Director.

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
