The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) is a self-help organization of adult survivors of clergy sexual abuse and their supporters. They work to end the cycle of abuse in two ways: By supporting one another in personal healing; and by pursuing justice and institutional change by holding individual perpetrators responsible and the church accountable. SNAP has local chapters and support groups in over 50 cities across the country. Via their website, SNAP provides resources such as peer counseling, contact information for local support groups, online discussion boards, a library of educational materials and news stories and ways to support their mission, both in the local community and on a national level. The SNAP website includes contact information for local SNAP chapters.
