WELCOME TO LifeSTEPS.

Since 1996 LifeSTEPS has helped our most vulnerable individuals and families forge better lives. Our Mission is to provide effective educational and supportive services to maximize the strengths of individuals and build resilient communities. We do this by providing comprehensive social and supportive services so low-income families and older adults can maintain stable housing through our case management, education and emergency assistance services. Homeless, veterans and special needs individuals are offered supportive services to secure and maintain housing.

At LifeSTEPS, we are there to catch people before they fall deeper into poverty and avoid homelessness by adhering to the highest standard of service possible. Our vision is that every person touched by LifeSTEPS will be empowered with the skills, resources and support to secure and maintain stable housing and break the cycle of poverty.

Big Day of Giving thank you
