This is a wonderful ministry that wonderfully serves a much under-served population...parents of special needs kids. I have had opportunity to provide respite to parents with special needs children and it is such a blessing to find a ministry like Snappin' that serves and supports parents who are often overwhelmed with the demands and challenges of raising specially "blessed" kids. I am so impressed with the efforts of the founder to reach as many parents and families as possible. I hope they continue to grow to reach and minister to more and more families.

I am blessed to have started volunteering with Snappin Ministries several years ago. Snappin is a well organized ministry with a well needed focus on the needs of parents raising kids with special needs. The ministries advocacy efforts and information sharing have helped to raise awareness on many issues. I am always amazed at the strength of these parents and am blessed with the opportunity to watch them be uplifted by the events and resources provided by Snappin Ministries.

Snappin' Ministries is an amazing organization dedicated to serving the servants. I have been both recipient and volunteer and have been blessed abundantly in both capacities.

I have been involved with Snappin Ministries for several years now. My first experience was at a member event in which we went bowling. Not only did my family have fun bowling amongst others but we received companionship with other families in our same situation. I have also been blessed to attend the mothers day retreat, on the planning committee and have my daughter attend a respite event. This last year I was involved in the Facebook book club and face to face book club which the topics, and discussion I felt blessed to have others to share my opinions and feel supported at the same time. This organization really is helping the community rooted in the Christian faith with the needs that families like ours so desire. I now serve on the board and plan to help with the Mother's day event this next year. This is a special organization for many families including ours. They are serving in ways that no one else does! Love Snappin!

Thank you for the wonderful encouragement! I am a parent of 3 children with special needs and participated in a small-group book study. It was such a positive and helpful experience, not like many of the other groups I have tried where I left feeling worse than when I arrived. I really appreciate how the study helped me gain some perspective on my family's situation and caused me to reevaluate some of my reactions and biases. I have felt so understood and supported by the group!

I love what this ministry does for so many families who have children with special needs. Supported by prayers, events, blogs, gifts of support of those in need and so much more in so many ways.

I fully support Snappin' Ministries in their mission to help families of special needs children. The care, love and respect given to these families is unsurpassed. I have volunteered and look forward to helping more in the coming years. I believe in the work they do and the importance it has to our communities.

I am both a volunteer and client served, and I consider Snappin' Ministries one of the top ministries serving families of children with disabilities. They have provided support and encouragement both online, through phone calls and emails, and physically with one of their famous care baskets. Snappin' Ministries is always there when we need them, whether it's prayer support or just a listening ear we need. I don't remember what it's like not to have them at my back, and I don't want to go there again!

Snappin' Ministries gave us a care basket and I STILL use stuff that we got in it a year later. Their ministry is phenomenal and true evidence that God does NOT leave us alone while we are here on earth...he surrounds us with love and support.
