Results: Begun in 2002, this organization began with 6 couples and a box of tissues. Today, we serve well over 3,500 families both locally and nationwide. In 2014, despite the economy, we were able to grant $2,452 in aid through gift cards and TLC baskets to families throughout the US. Parents were also able to connect with us through various conferences and special family events. Bowling, kite flying, and adaptive water-skiing were just a part of the fun. We also ran multiple mentoring groups using Facebook and Zoom video conferencing, so parents can participate from the comfort of their own homes.

SNAPPIN' Ministries is so much more than a charity. It's a ray of sunshine on a dark, stormy day. It's a glimpse of hope when a family is in despair. It's a kiss from heaven during someone's hell on earth. As a mother of two kids with special needs, a donor to this worthy nonprofit, a friend to another mom who received a basket, and a grateful recipient of a Mother's Day spa treatment. I heartily endorse this work.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
We mothers of children with autism form a pretty tightly-knit group. Often, we refer to the "Mommy Network" as the best way to get things done and find hidden resources. A friend of mine was going through a challenging time with her son with autism. She and her husband desperately needed some encouragement to move forward. The basket I requested Barb send through SNAPPIN' made their week and gave them the strength to carry on and the "hug" that told them someone else cared.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
get other ministries to collaborate with them to support their families with children with special needs.
