Snappin' Ministries ministers to parents of kids with special needs. This non-profit has a huge heart and a reach far greater than than their budget indicates. Volunteers give of time and talents to provide quarterly respite and family fun events in Wisconsin. They also send gift baskets to families around the country, provide awareness of special needs resources via social media and encouragement via their top notch blog. They also train parents of kids with special needs to mentor other parents with special needs to reduce isolation and build connections for families. Snappin' truly is a great non-profit.
I've worked with Barb for the past two years as we developed and wrote the Parent to Parent Mentoring Curriculum. I was asked to join the board a year and a half ago. In both capacities, Barb has been a woman of vision with a deep desire to meet the practical and spiritual needs of parents of kids with special needs. Her efforts on their behalf are tireless, even as she cares for her own children, two of whom have special needs. Barb has created an organization that meets parents where they are at and connects them to resources and groups able to ease their burden and give them hope. Being part of Snappin' as a board member is an exciting and fulfilling endeavor.
I became involved with SNAPPIN’ MINISTRIES last year. I am very proud to be a part of such a great organization. This non-profit organization made up of volunteers helps parents of children with special needs. It is a faith-based program that helps mentor and support people. In the center of it all is an amazing woman named Barb. This organization is one-of-a-kind in the nation!
SNAPPIN' is the little non-profit that could! Through some of the most dedicated volunteers out there, parents of children with special needs are served in unique ways. Most recently, the organization launched a faith-based parent mentor program that is one-of-a-kind in the nation. Parents can meet with their mentor right from their own home, no matter where they are in the country. A new smart phone app is also being launched to assist parents whether they're at home, in a doctor's office or at a hospital. People with skills ranging from having a love for children, to graphic artists, to licensed professionals make this all happen. What an organization!
Time and time again I have seen the volunteers of this organization offer powerful compassion with small gestures of kindness to parents of kids with special needs. It warms my heart to see this highly neglected population given hope and encouragement with simple things like a gift basket, a kind word at a time of stress or aid at a time of crisis!
This is a wonderful organization and I had so much fun volunteering that I am staying on! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming to new people. I've worked with other non- profits before but this one is different. Everything about it deserves an A+ I can't wait to see where God is taking this organization!!!!
