Who We Are

About

SNAP Financial Access Creates Opportunity For Our Community.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Welcome to snapfinancialaccess.org, where you’ll find invaluable tools to strengthen your financial independence and economically revitalize our region’s communities. 

SNAP focuses on stabilizing our neighbors, providing them with their basic needs, and equipping them to exit poverty. Our Financial Access department focuses on preparing our neighbors to thrive by providing financing and consulting services to entrepreneurs, small business owners, and families. Through loans and consulting, the financial stability team contributes to building new and strengthening existing businesses, creating additional employment, and rehabilitating and creating home ownership.

I am grateful to have SNAP Financial Access as an important part of the SNAP family. The work done at SFA is a natural extension of the work our agency does as a whole and an instrumental part of our community. SNAP Financial Access has a long track record of creating new businesses, new homeowners, and newly empowered neighbors. I am confident in our continued ability to lead Spokane into an era of economic revitalization and long-term stability.

~ Julie Honekamp, SNAP CEO
