North Texas SNAP’s Expanded Living Program is a two year, fee based program that is highly structured for individuals with a mild or moderate intellectual and developmental disability who wish to develop the skills and confidence to live independently.
Members must apply for the program, if accepted the program includes:
- An introductory seminar, interview and assessment
- Interactive workshops for participants and their families (6 months).
- One-on-one individualized training based on the participants specific needs (18 months).
The goal of this program is to provide participants with the tools to successfully live independently, with a roommate and/or in a group home setting.

“SNAP is a great way to be social and make new friends! Girls Night Out has helped me discover new things. The Expanded Living Program has helped me become more independent and helped me to prepare for when I move out on my own.”
“Before SNAP I didn’t have “a life”, now I have lots of friends and get to do a lot of fun activities like Men’s Club, Supper Club and Rangers’ games. And I get to learn how to be a better man.”
“I like to go bowling with SNAP because of the great people and the great price! I have become much more social since joining SNAP.”
“I like Supper Club because I can meet new people and greet old friends!”
“I love SNAP. I have a lot of friends. I like bowling. I like to go to dances with my girlfriend. I like Men’s Club and all the different sports events and activities. Project Neighbor helps me to live on my own. I was scared at first but I learned how to be safe, cook, clean and take care of myself.”
“My favorite thing about North Texas SNAP is it’s fun! I like the people. I like to help out my friends. I like going to the movies with my friends. I like learning about leadership in Men’s Club. I am so glad SNAP has helped me through Paul Baker to get a job and live on my own. I am learning how to do things like budgeting my money.”
