For 50 years, SNAP has led efforts to reduce poverty and homelessness in the Spokane area. In 1966, Father Frank Bach established three community centers to help local families in need. Over time, the organization grew and began to broaden its focus beyond alleviating basic needs to include in-depth forms of assistance as well. Today, SNAP's staff members work with people experiencing homelessness to find housing and take steps toward achieving self-sufficiency. SNAP's services include money management workshops, small business development, weatherization work, energy-efficiency loans and food grants— as well as family-development and life-skills classes to teach families how to achieve stability in their rental situations.
