Welcome to Survivors 
Welcome, Survivors and Supporters!

If you or a loved one have been victimized by clergy, or religious figures of authority, please know that you are not alone. You can get better. You can reach out to others who've been hurt just like you have. Together, we can heal one another.

We are SNAP DFW, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests in the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX area.

SNAP is the nation's largest, oldest and most active support group for women and men wounded by religious authority figures (priests, ministers, bishops, deacons, nuns, brothers, monks, and others). We are an independent and confidential organization, with no connections with the church or church officials. And we are here to help.

SNAP was founded by Chicago's Barbara Blaine in 1989. Since then, SNAP has helped thousands of survivors. We offer support in person, (via monthly self-help group meetings in chapters across the country), over the phone, on line, and at twice-a-year national meetings.

We also provide a safe and productive outlet for the passion many survivors feel toward preventing future abuse.

The SNAPDFW.net Web site, as well as the the SNAPnetwork.org natiional site, exist to provide support and knowledge to all victims of clergy and religious authority abuse, to help educate the public, and to help ensure that in future generations, children will be safe.

Welcome! Reach out! Get help!
