The SNAP Team are all still busy working from home and connecting with our families via phone, email, Zoom and Facebook. We are doing everything possible to ensure families have the help they need to endure this challenging time as well as empower them for their next steps. We are still actively fundraising and we hope we can count on your support both now and in the difficult months to come.
