Welcome to SNAP Northwest

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

SNAP is a self-help organization of men and women who were sexually abused by spiritual elders
(Catholic priests, brothers, nuns, ministers, teachers, etc).   Members find healing and empowerment
by joining with other survivors. SNAP was founded by Barbara Blaine of Chicago in 1989.  We are an
all-volunteer group with local chapters throughout the United States and Canada.

The Millstone Project

It was 2,000 years ago, but Jesus' words have never rung truer than they do today.
As quoted in the New Testament, Matthew 18:5-6, he said that whoever harms a child should have a "heavy millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea." Now those words have become the basis for the nation's first memorial to victims of sexual abuse by priests.
