CCWVa SNAP Outreach program helps our neighbors apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps). These benefits are modest, but can make a big difference in the lives of recipients.
This is Tim’s story:
Tim lost his job 14 years ago and has had trouble keeping steady employment due to disabilities and a lack of job training. But he is a hard worker and wants to learn to be self-sufficient.
Tim is currently honing his skills through a part-time worker training program offered through the National Council on Aging. Through this program Tim is learning new skills which will help him find full-time employment. Tim received $15 per month in SNAP benefits, and though it isn’t much it does help him to stretch his food budget.
