SNAP (Stop Now and Plan) helps children and parents deal effectively with anger by teaching them how to respond in a way that makes their problems smaller, not bigger. With help and practice, children and parents are able to stop, calm down, and generate positive solutions at the “snap of their fingers.”
The core components of the SNAP Cornwall program include SNAP Boys, Girls and Parent Groups. Additional components include Homework Club, School Advocacy, Individual Befriending, Individualized Family Counselling, Victim Restitution, Access to Arson Prevention Programs and Long Term Connections. A child and their family may participate in some or all of the components of SNAP (based on risk and need) with the goal of preventing future antisocial behaviour. The additional components are available for as long as there is an identified need and/or interest from the child and family.
The agency is excited to invite the community to attend its our open house in order to provide additional information about the services provided at SNAP Cornwall. This event will provide an opportunity to enjoy a tour of the facility and to meet SNAP staff members. Refreshments will be provided.
