North Texas SNAP’s Expanded Living Program was developed in response to parents and the board’s interest in having a precursorsary program to our Project Neighbor independent living program.
It is a comprehensive, individualized program to prepare our members for the step into greater independence and responsibility. Members will develop the knowledge, skills and understanding that will help build confidence as they work towards the goal of greater independence.
