Snappin Ministries helped me tremendously when I had a recent unexpected expense. They are awesome to work with and very inspiring.
This organization provides wonderful resources and support for parents like myself. I am constantly impressed by their activity and the information they share through various social media outlets. I am learning more and more impressive things about them everyday. I have spoken with Barb on several occasions and find her to be both professional and extremely familial. I am looking forward to volunteering my time with this organization!
Not only am I blessed enough to have been the recipient of a much needed Mommy Basket...I have spent months getting to know this ministry and their heart. This is so needed and so important. As a mom, a caregiver and a registered nurse, a ministry such as this is a blessing to so many in such a specific way. keep it up! We love you!
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 have worked with this group from day one. I keep working with them because when I see the people Snappin serves, it gives me the perspective I need to know that my situation pales in comparison to the needs of others. Snappin has showed me the fact that it is a blessing to give. I have seen the look of gratitude when a family recieves a gift basket, a meal dropped off, or just the acknowledgement that someone actually cares. When raising a special need child, Snappin sees that it is not just the child that needs special care, the parents are also in need of some support. This ministry lets me know that someone else understands how difficult is is to be the parent of one of these prscious children.
I have seen Snappin' Ministies grow from a grass roots effort to an organization that soley seeks to help the families of special needs children. Having been a special needs family, we know the challenges that abound and there is not one of those challenges that cannot be met with advice, love, and solutions provided by Snappin'. 5 star in my book.
Snappin' Ministries is a fabulous outreach network with Barb Dittrich at the helm! We were recipients in the not too distant past, and while I won't go into great detail, I will say that both my husband & son have disabilities (different from each other) and that Barb has been there with a big ear to listen and common sens to help me prevail!
I have seen this ministry in action. They are very proactive in counseling, education, and offering spiritual, emotional and physical support. The director, Barb, has a heart of gold and her intentions are sincere in seeing that families with loved ones with disabilities are connected with all the resources that they need to continue serving their loved ones with more love, knowledge, and strength then they have ever had before.
I am a pastor who has led Bible studies for parents of children with special needs on various occasions. Snappin Ministries INC has demonstrated creative ways of encouraging and partnering with families to help them along in their difficult, and often confusing journey. Barb and her team consistently help families properly order their priorities and discover inspiration to persevere. I therefore highly recommend this nonprofit to anyone looking for assistance in the area of special needs. Bryan Roe Pastor of Student Ministries Crosspoint Community Church Oconomowoc, WI
Again and again I have seen this nonprofit reach out to parents that are struggling and offer help and hope. They offer aid to families suffering through all sorts of disabilities, physical and emotional. They "get" all the areas where parenting a special needs child is hard -- the financial issues, the loneliness, the fear, and the isolation. They have programs for respite, and programs for helping families in crisis obtain needed medical services when finances would otherwise cancel them. This isn't an institution -- it's a group of caring individuals that have come together to offer what they can, and what they can is an awful lot.
I have autism and other physical disabilities. My children also have autism. Snappin' Ministries has helped me tremendously--from the care package to the monthly e-newsletter. It certainly makes my day a lot brighter!
I was blessed to become the foster mom for a beautiful 12 year old child. Snappin ministries sent me a care package. One night when the medical crisis my son survived ended, I opened up my present. It included personal items, toys for my new son and a book. It may have only been a care package... but for me that night it was a friend. My heart thanks you.
Snappin Ministries is a great organization offering families resouces, trainings, and just networking. Families with special needs kids can feel isolated at times because of the challenges associated with raising a special needs kid. It is nice to know there is an organization just specifically for us parents. They are amazing and deserve 5 stars!!!
Snappin ministries is an outstanding organization that continues to be a resource for our blended family in dealing with the every day issues that having 5 special needs children brings!
I am always impressed by the love for and desire to help families with special needs that I see in Barb and the volunteers of Snappin'. It is incredible how much helpful information is distributed. The practical help for families in difficult situations is great. I appreciate both the Christian perspective and the practicality!
You cannot believe what this ministry offers. The support that I have received and the love from Barb is unsurmountable. God knows when we need someone in our life just at the right moment. She offers many acts of kindness and pampering opportunites that people just don't realize how important this is. I have been worn out, beat up and on my last leg when this ministry has loved and comforted me. Thank you Barb and those behind the scenes who devote their time and talent to be kind!
What a great organization. I can never keep up with the wealth of information being posted every day in so many areas of disabilities. I love the Christian aspect of the organization as well. Thank you Snappin Ministries for your emotional, practical, and spiritual support!
Snappin Ministries helped our family in a time of need. The support we received was timely, encouraging and very much appreciated. They serve a population that is in need but often goes unnoticed. The personal connection they offer is comforting and ongoing.
I have watched this ministry move from a dream to a reality. A ministry meeting needs of parents and children with a heart of compassion.
Our son has Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, and had a shunt malfunction this year that caused him to have to have surgery in June. At first we'd suspected Tethered Cord Syndrome, and I was talking about the surgery for that on Twitter, when Barb asked if I would like a care package for his hospital stay. Just knowing that she cared helped me through it, and my spirit was lifted when the package got to us.
This is a truly wonderful organization that works so hard to help children with special needs. They are always there to help!
Snappin' Ministries is a wonderful organization that is always striving to help meet the needs and lift the spirits of struggling special needs families, whether that is through formal acts of the non-for-profit, or through all the personal kindnesses on the side that Barb Dittrich, who runs things, can fit into her own life, on behalf of others. Never satisfied with what she, or the organization is already doing, there is a commendable aspiration to find new, better and more ways to reach out to anyone who needs an understanding and supportive hand. What makes Snappin' Ministries stand out even more to me is not just what they do, but how they do it. They are a faith-inspired organization, but they share their faith without ever imposing it. They do not ask what you believe, or pressure you to believe what they do. They simply act to their best conscience, and hope their example, directly or indirectly, benefits you. There is no judgment before or after rendering of services. Accepting charity can be touchy enough for most people who need it, without bringing in religious guilt, so that this organization gives religiously -- literally -- without forcing anyone to accept strings that might be hard for them to swallow is something that really sets them apart.
Wonderful organization, helps not only local people but others in need throughout the US with suggestions, advice, and kind words. Even assists other area groups looking to set up a similar ministry. A wonderful knowledge base and a true asset to the special needs community!
A fantastic organization with a mission to help others, especially the most vulnerable. Barb is a fantastic advocate and supporter of families with children with special needs.
An organization is only as good as the people behind it. Barb is an incredibly dedicated and heart driven woman and mom. She brings excitment, hope, and information to Snappin Ministries.
Barb has a heart of gold. Her caring nature and love for people of all abilities is shown every day in her work. Barb uses Twitter, Facebook and other technologies to push the work she does out on the national and international stage. Five stars isn't nearly enough.
I'm a mother with a special needs daughter with JIA. Snappin' Ministries has been wonderful with their support and inspirational stories. They were especially kind when I was dealing with all the hospitals and doctors when my daughter was hospitalized. They truly provide a Christian environment of caring, good will, and compassion.
I am a mom with a special needs little boy with cerebral palsy. Snappin' ministries is inspiring and helps other moms like me to link up with each other. The support from this ministry is wonderful. They truly exhibit a Christlike love for people
I was really frustrated this past spring when my daughter finally got diagnosed with PDD-NOS. Feeling lost and alone, Snappin Ministries helped me to feel like people really do care, and offered me support and networking to help me through a tough time.
I was chatting with friends on twitter and that is where I learned about them. I am a mom of an autistic daughter and myself I have a rare type of cancer. It is a place for inspiration friendship and help when you need it. Out of the blue I recieved a basket from them with some much needed TLC . The basket came with just what we needed at that time it was a real blessing. They do such good work for parents of disabled kids.
This is an extraordinary group of people that are parents of special needs children themselves who take time out of their lives to minister to those in need. There is tremendous heart felt devotion to doing goodworks and helping others. They are one of the most worthwhile charities I have come across lately. They are hands on and make the lives of some very isolated parents and their families better.
I am a mom who has been graced by the services and support of Sanppin' Ministries. They have always been there for me and my family. They have helped us in times of need. Touched my heart when I did not know where else to turn! The 'Mom's Day Out...Spa Days' are the best!
Barb is a true trailblazer in the field of special needs. The passion and knowledge she brings to the table is amazing and the families who have worked with her are very lucky. I admire all the she does and continues to do to advocate for families with special needs.
