Special Needs Adult Program – S.N.A.P.


A person has innate worth, has ideas/opinions of value, and has basic human rights. We acknowledge these facts and structure our daily program to encourage and support the whole person in an accepting Christian environment. This program like others at St. Andrew follow the guidelines for Safe Sanctuaries. The Safe Sanctuaries policy reflects St. Andrew’s commitment to provide a safe and secure environment for all children, youth and vulnerable adults, as well as the volunteers and staff who participate in ministries and activities sponsored by the church.


This program is offered to post-graduate high school students who cannot or have not found employment because of physical or mental challenges.  These persons were classified in the public school system as SLD (severe learning disability) or the higher functioning MI (mentally impaired).

The S.N.A.P. class is designed to meet the social and recreational needs of our program participants. 

Transportation to and from the SNAP program may be arranged through Kanawha Rapid Transit Authority (KRT)


Monthly tuition is due on the first of each month.  Tuition is $250.00 per month.  There may be scholarships available for a portion of each month’s tuition. 

Since SNAP is a non=profit with their own 501(C)(3) status, ALL Donations should be made out directly to them and mailed to the following address:
815 Kanawha Terrace
St. Albans, WV 25177


The class meets three days a week (Monday-Wednesday) from 9:30 a.m.-2:30p.m.  Students should not arrive in class before 9:15 a.m.  The S.N.A.P. Class follows the Kanawha County School calendar for days off and holidays.  In the event of a 2 hour delay the S.N.A.P. Class will not meet.


Students bring their lunch each day to class.  We have a refrigerator and a microwave in our kitchen area for them to use.
