Highland Heights opens doors for SNAP clients

January 30, 2012

The local SNAP (Senior Nutrition Activities Program) institution, while temporary closed by the city, has been assisted by a local church in serving as a temporary meeting location.

When the City Commission presented the deteriorating condition and temporary closing of the local SNAP (Senior Nutrition Activities Program) building for reconstruction this January, a local church stepped up to fill the void left by the facilities.
Highland Heights United Methodist Church has opened its doors for SNAP attendees to use as a temporary meeting location. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays, folks can bring their own lunch or their purchased meal from SNAP — the kitchen remains open during this time — and dine in the church's fellowship hall.
In addition, guests can socialize, visit with friends and participate in games while at the church.
The temporary closure and construction was prompted by a report compiled by city engineers, which noted that the "roof is unsafe". Other inspections stated that leaks have been seen when rain or other precipitation falls, as well as that possible problems have been found with the structure.
During their Jan. 10, 2012 meeting, the City Commission approved the authorization of city staff to seek bids for construction on the senior program, which will help the city determine what steps to take during the process.
The church understands the importance of SNAP within the community for senior citizens, thus taking the initiative from a physical perspective. In the meantime, as the church serves in this manner, they are also praying for the program and swift reconstruction and renovation efforts for the SNAP facilities.
