SNAP - Stop Now And Plan
SNAP stands for STOP NOW AND PLAN. It helps troubled children and their parents learn how to effectively manage their emotions and keep problems small. The gender-sensitive SNAP program is designed for children ages 6-11 who are engaging in aggressive, anti-social behavior and/or have come into contact with authority figures at school or in the community.
Experienced and highly trained staff work with each family to assess challenges and problems and develop an action plan. Children and families may participate with the goal of preventing future anti-social behavior and reducing the chances of conflict with family, peers and authority figures.
SNAP services are at no cost to youth and their families. Anchorage Children’s Home receives funding for the SNAP program from the Florida Network of Youth and Family Services/Department of Juvenile Justice so families do not pay for services.
In addition to services at no cost, SNAP families are fed dinner and snacks at each session. Sibling care is also provided and arrangements for transportation can be provided, if needed.
Referrals can be made at any time by anyone!
