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.

I attended the mom's conference, while I was asked to come as the speaker, after I addressed the mom's, I enjoyed an amazing afternoon being pampered, enjoying good food, and having great conversations. I walked away feeling refreshed and thankful to have attended the reatreat, and especially thankful for the leader, Barb Dittrich, who is passionate about helping parents know they are not alone, and they are loved.

We LOVE SNAPPIN Ministries!! I learned about their organization about 4 years ago and they have become an invaluable resource for me and my family. I only wish I had learned about them a few years sooner when I actually lived in WI. But thankfully, they are there to help families nationwide. I have received some great resource books from them on special needs and special needs ministry that have been amazing!

SNAPPIN is an incredible resource for families affected by disability. The best part is that the people of SNAPPIN, particularly their leader / founder Barb - are living in the trenches every day - raising a child with a disability. They embody compassion, empathy, and encouragement.

I have had a great experience with Snappin' Ministries in multiple ways and opportunities. The one I am going to emphasize in this review is the pleasure I had working with them in one aspect of their summer picnic. They invited me in to help them bring their picnic from an indoor concept to an outdoor concept and include adaptive water skiing. They joined USA Water Ski to do this thoroughly and take command of the whole dynamic of doing this. With the success they had in providing water skiing on sit skis and a few cases of stand-up skiing, there is already talk of considering this for next year.

Another proverbial feather in their cap is they do everything they do, and now they have proven that they can also deliver adaptive water skiing to add yet other way that families that have a member with a disability can benefit.
