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 the low-income people in our neighborhoods. We’ve always believed that a hand-up goes further than a hand-out. Since our inception, we have helped people transition from crisis to self-sufficiency by caring for immediate needs while laying the foundation for future successes.
If SNAP wasn’t here, Spokane would look and feel very different
- More families would be homeless.
- Jobs may be lost, as businesses fold for lack of investment or assets.
- Most of SNAP’s funding includes complicated requirements and specific rules dictating how funds are spent.
