Message from the Team

2015 was an excellent year for the SNAP National Expansion.  With generous investment from our venture philanthropy partners, government, foundation, corporate and individual supporters we have raised $3.7 million dollars towards our campaign goal of $12 million. To read more about our achievements over 2015, click here.

We are on track to achieving our goal of bringing SNAP – Stop Now And Plan – to an additional 20,000 children across Canada by 2019. We will do this by working with 140 children’s mental health and other community organizations in high-priority areas over the next several years. SNAP's Community Implementation Plan works with stakeholders in each community to ensure successful implementation and sustainability. Reaching these 20,000 children will result in a social impact of just under $3 billion of societal savings in criminal justice system costs alone. The SNAP Expansion will transform the face of children’s mental health in Canada by addressing unmet service needs in schools and communities.

With the commitment of our donors, the SNAP Campaign Cabinet, CDI’s leadership and the SNAP team, we are now entering the “Scaling Up” phase of the Expansion which will see us working with a number of new affiliates over the next few years.

SNAP was selected by the LEAP: The Centre for Social Impact, as its inaugural portfolio charity. The Centre applies the discipline of private equity investing to select, support and scale charities with quantifiable social impact. The Centre teams up high-potential charities with forward-thinking investors and private sector expertise to create measurable and sustainable benefits to society. The SNAP team is delighted to have LEAP’s partnership in helping bring SNAP to as many children and families as possible, forever changing the lives of at-risk children from coast to coast.

“SNAP is really very innovative and very much at the cutting edge of development on programs for under 12. There is virtually nothing else like it in the world. It’s a world leader.”
