Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP): SNAP is the largest, oldest, and most active support group for people who have been wounded by religious and institutional authorities (priests, ministers, bishops, deacons, nuns, coaches, teachers, and others). Survivors of Institutional Abuse (SIA): SIA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering and supporting the healing of adults who have been subject to emotional, physical or sexual abuse in private or government institutions, detention centers or foster care. SIA advocates for the rights of youth and the disabled by advancing legislation to protect them from abuse in institutional settings. We also provide support for institutional abuse survivors through resources and a referral service and through our annual convention that promotes healing, awareness and advocacy.
