“I’ve been supported through tutoring, mentorship, fuel support cards, and emergency funding, in a positive and caring environment.” – SNAP E&T PLUS participant

“Being involved with SNAP E&T… was an incredible support system that I am deeply grateful for…I never felt like I was navigating my education alone. They offer resources like professional clothing and sometimes even funds to keep your old beater vehicle running until you can complete your education and get back on your feet. This support allowed me to stay focused on my studies and reach my goals. Surrounding yourself with caring, non-judgmental, and positive people truly matters…”-SNAP E&T PLUS participant
