STEP BY STEP provides a variety of services in low resource areas to young single moms ages 14 to 24, with the goal of improving the lives of these young moms and their children through healing, encouragement, faith and education. We work with our moms both at our bimonthly large group meetings and at our center downtown, where we can work with them individually. We believe the true way to healing and life-changing is through the power of Jesus Christ at work in our lives, so the most important thing we do at Step By Step is share the truth of God’s love and His unceasing faithfulness.

Photo by Terri Behrens Step By Step has touched the lives of thousands of mothers and their children over the past 23 years. We work in partnership with our moms to empower them and give them the tools to change their own lives. With a staff of 4, we work through crisis management and connect these families to important resources to

meet basic needs from housing to mental health care and everything in between. We partner with local agencies to provide wrap around services, closing important gaps that these families would otherwise fall through. Additionally, we provide support through our bimonthly meetings, Parenting Classes, Heathy Cooking Classes, Mentoring Program, and Life Skills courses which we offer with partner organizations throughout the community such as the Family Care Center. We offer each mom that steps through our doors on-going care and case management emphasizing our Dare To Dream Program. We offer our moms and children incentives, support, guidance, and unconditional love. Through this holistic program, we enter their homes and schools and help them set and reach goals. Of the moms who complete the Step By Step program, the vast majority go back to school or become employed, some even complete college degrees! The difference these accomplishments make in the lives of these families leads to self-sufficiency and stability. “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.� James 1:27
