SNAP (Spokane Neighborhood Action Partners) is the local and regional advocate for the most vulnerable people living within our community. With a dedicated board of directors, staff and volunteers, SNAP diligently searches for long-term solutions to eliminate poverty. For 50 years SNAP has served the Spokane region as a leading voice on poverty. As the Spokane area’s Community Action leader, SNAP takes the lead in educating and empowering our low-income neighbors. We’ve always believed that a hand-up goes a lot further than a hand-out, and have, since our inception, helped people transition from crisis to stability by caring for immediate needs while laying the foundation for future success.The mission of SNAP is to Increasing the human potential of our community by providing opportunities for people in need.
